Breast Cancer Screenings - Digital Mammography
Breast cancer accounts for more than 30 percent of all female cancers. It is the most common form of cancer in American women and second only to lung cancer as the leading cause of cancer deaths for this population.
Getting an annual mammogram is the key to catching breast cancer early - when it's easier to treat. Digital mammography provides higher quality images of breast tissue, allowing Summa physicians to identify breast cancers that could be missed using traditional mammogram techniques.
Clearer, high quality images allow physicians to make the most accurate diagnosis possible.
The benefits of early diagnosis mean:
- Breast cancer treatment can be started sooner
- There is an increased opportunity for less traumatic treatment
- The risk for death from cancer is reduced
And, with digital mammography, you'll spend less time in the exam room, less time waiting for results - and have more time to enjoy life.
