Digital Mammography is the single most effective way to detect breast cancer in its earliest stages. Early detection improves survival and increases treatment options. The risk of breast cancer increases as women age. The American Cancer Society recommends routine screening mammography should begin at age 40. Some physicians advocate screening beginning at a younger age for women with certain risk factors. Screening should continue throughout a woman’s lifetime. Once is not enough.
At AMI AtlantiCare, our full-field digital mammography system with computer aided detection (CAD) revolutionizes breast care and helps physicians detect and diagnose breast cancer earlier and more accurately. It also provides a clear and precise all-digital image. Our state-of-the-art mammography unit is designed to maximize patient comfort while offering superior images for diagnostic purposes.
Preparation for Digital Mammography:
To help minimize discomfort during your mammography, schedule your mammogram for one week after your period when breasts are less tender.
