New Online Risk Assessment

To further aid in early detection, our Baroness and East breast imaging locations now offer a quick risk assessment to help determine if you may be at higher risk for certain types of cancers as a result of hereditary risk factors.

Hologic Genius 3D Mammography™

The Hologic 3D Mammography™ system offers you a more accurate, clinically proven breast cancer screening exam.

  • Only mammography exam proven to detect 20-65% more invasive breast cancer compared to 2D mammography alone. For many, this may translate into an earlier diagnosis
  • Up to 40% reduction in callbacks.

For many, this may mean being spared the emotional, practical, and economic burdens of additional diagnostic evaluations, including biopsies

  • The only mammogram FDA-approved as superior for women with dense breasts.

As density increases, so does the risk of breast cancer. For women of many ages and breast densities, this means a more accurate screening option helping avoid uncertainty in the future.

  • Mammography equipment has New SmartCurve™ breast stabilization system to improve patient comfort without compromising image quality, workflow or dose.
  • Faster – less compression time – from about 40 seconds to less than 10 seconds
