Dr. Setfliff, Radiologist discusses why Breast Cancer Awareness is important and 3D mammography is the Gold Standard to screening.
“Breast Cancer Awareness month is October of every year. Early breast cancer detection is important, since 1 in 8 women will be diagnosed in their lifetime. The risk for developing breast cancer increases with age and breast cancer risk is greater in patients with dense breasts.
3D mammography is the gold standard for screening dense breast tissue, since 3D images provide a clearer view of the breast tissue than does routine mammography. To treat breast cancer, you must first find it – therefore, annual screening mammography is critically important for early breast cancer detection.”
