Enjoy the Benefits of Upgraded Equipment at Amberwell
Amberwell Hiawatha is excited to announce the addition of 3D mammography to our radiology service offerings. Our newly installed 3D mammography machine uses digital technology to produce high-quality images that can help detect abnormalities sooner than traditional mammography, often even before you can feel a lump.
Why 3D Mammography?
Also known as tomosynthesis, 3D mammography is an advanced screening technique that uses X-rays to produce detailed three-dimensional images of the breast. Unlike traditional mammography, which only produces a two-dimensional image, 3D mammography creates a more comprehensive image of the breast tissue. This has many benefits, including:
- Improved accuracy: 3D mammography allows radiologists to see more of the breast tissue, making it easier to detect smaller lesions or tumors that could be missed with traditional mammography.
- Early detection is critical in treating breast cancer. 3D mammography helps detect cancer at earlier stages, which means treatment can start sooner, improving your chances of successful outcomes.
- Reduced radiation exposure: 3D mammography uses lower doses of radiation compared to traditional mammography, reducing your risk of radiation exposure.
- More precise biopsy targeting: If a lesion is identified during a 3D mammogram, it can be more precisely located, reducing the need for additional imaging, and ensuring a more accurate biopsy.
- 3D mammography provides a more comfortable experience for you, with less compression required during the screening process.
- Better imaging for dense breasts: Women with dense breast tissue often have more difficulty detecting breast cancer with traditional mammography. 3D mammography produces more detailed images, making it easier to detect cancer in dense breast tissue.
