Digital Mammography is provided in Radiology's women's services area. Ammenities include private waiting area, relaxing decor, mood lighting, background music, heated spa robes and fresh infused water.
Early detection is the most critical issue in breast cancer diagnosis and treatment. That's why regular mammograms are so important for all women over 40. Mammography can find cancer when it's most treatable, often one to three years before a woman can feel a lump with the recommended monthly breast self-exam. Although it's 100 times more common in women, men can also develop breast cancer.
