The Margaret W. Niedland Breast Center is one of the first facilities in
the area to offer 3-D mammography (tomosynthesis). This technology is
extremely useful for women who have dense breast tissue. On a traditional
mammogram, dense breast tissue appears white and sometimes can hide masses,
such as cancer.
With 3-D mammography, we are better able to overcome this obstacle.
Using 3-D mammography, our radiologists can examine breast tissue layer
by layer, one millimeter at a time. Instead of viewing all of the complexities
of breast tissue in a flat image, as with traditional 2-D mammography,
fine details are more visible and are no longer hidden by tissue above
or below. Radiologists are able to see suspicious areas more clearly,
decreasing the need for patients to return for additional imaging or unnecessary biopsies.
Patients report that the ergonomic design of this system helps deliver
a more comfortable experience. Additionally, this system offers the lowest
possible radiation dose from its advanced detector technology.
Same-Day Test Results
We have taken steps to alleviate stress and improve the screening process
by offering same-day mammogram results. One of our physicians will personally
meet with you to discuss your mammogram results at the end of your appointment.
If you require additional tests, arrangements can be made for same-day
imaging and procedures. This commitment is more than just a convenience
for busy or anxious patients, it encourages women to get and continue
regular breast screenings.
The Margaret W. Niedland Breast Center is a state-of-the-art facility with
the most advanced and sophisticated imaging and diagnostic technology
available. Our team is passionate about supporting our patients’
breast health and overall well-being.
