SGMC has a powerful new tool – 3-D mammography – to help in the early detection of breast cancer. 3-D mammography is an advanced technology that takes multiple images of breast tissue to recreate a 3-D picture of the breast. It’s different than traditional mammography, which obtains just a single image.
• Better breast cancer detection (detects 35% more cancers)
• Fewer callbacks for false positives (saves stress and money)
• Examines the breast in more detail
Available at SGMC’s Imaging Center and SGMC’s Outpatient Plaza. At age 40, women should begin annual mammograms. Call 229-293-3640 for more information.
Mammography accredited by the American College of Radiology
