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
The Niedland Breast Screening Center is located at 11310 Legacy Place,

Hospital Nicklaus Outpatient Center). For more information, or to schedule
