FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Grand Opening Today, March 11, 2013!

JUPITER, Fla. (March 11, 2013) – In their continuing effort to detect breast cancer at its earliest, most treatable stage, Jupiter Medical Center is proud to announce the grand opening of the Niedland Breast Screening Center at Legacy Place in Palm Beach Gardens.

In addition to the Margaret W. Niedland Breast Center located at 1025 Military Trail in Jupiter, the new 1,400 square foot Niedland Breast Screening Center provides 3D mammography (tomosynthesis), bone densitometry and blood draws in one convenient location, with ample parking and easy access.

The Niedland Breast Screening Center offers fast, stress-free mammograms, designed for working women or busy moms on the go, so patients can take care of themselves and continue on with their day.

“Jupiter Medical Center is dedicated to bringing the latest advances in women’s imaging to our community,” said Sherri Lewman, director of radiology services at Jupiter Medical Center. “Adding the second facility provides greater access to the women south of Jupiter Medical Center’s main campus. Both locations position us in the community as the premiere provider of women’s radiology services offering the highest quality of care.” 

About 3D mammography (tomosynthesis): 3D mammography revolutionizes how breast cancer is detected, providing increased diagnostic accuracy and finding breast cancer at an earlier stage. Exams are performed on a digital mammography unit that takes multiple low-dose 3D images of a compressed breast from different angles. Because of the 3D imaging capability, radiologists now view breast tissue layer by layer, one millimeter at a time.

This technology is extremely useful for all women, especially those who have dense breast tissue. 3D mammography has been proven to provide an eight percent increase in breast cancer detection with a 25 percent decrease in callback rates to find those cancers.

Nationally accredited by the American College of Radiology (ACR) and designated as an ACR Breast Imaging Center of Excellence, the Margaret W. Niedland Breast Center was the first facility in Palm Beach and Martin counties to offer 3D mammography. For more information, visit www.jupiterbreastcare.com/tomo.
