Ready to Discover a Professional and Conveniently Located Digital Mammogram Clinic Near Homestead, FL?
Mammography remains the best method for early breast cancer detection. New digital technology is gradually replacing traditional film-based mammograms the same way digital cameras have replaced film cameras. Traditional film screen mammography is limited in its ability to detect some cancers, especially those occurring in women with radiographically dense breasts. For this reason, extensive efforts to improve mammography have occurred.
We offer digital mammography for the earliest detection of breast cancer at our facility
A digital mammogram includes standard 2D images. If you also have the 3D examination, the combination of the 2D and 3D exposes you to about twice the radiation as a standard digital screening mammogram. The total exposure is equal to that of an old traditional film based mammogram. To put your exposure into everyday terms, a 2D mammogram with additional 3D images is equal to your radiation exposure if you:
Flew 2,000 miles
Drove 600 miles
Rode a bike for 20 miles
Breathed the air in Boston or New York City for 4 days
When you factor in that screening mammograms with 3D imaging reduces callbacks by more than 50%, in addition to false positives and false negatives, the radiation exposure is a minimal concern at best.
