One in eight women in our area will be diagnosed with breast cancer and we believe that is too many. Passavant is committed to reducing breast cancer rates in our communities and has now employed the most advanced breast screening technology in this area – 3D tomosynthesis. This new advancement, when used in combination with traditional 2D mammography, can increase early detection by 40%. And early detection can lead to a 98% survival rate.
This new advancement produces a three-dimensional image of breast tissue in one-millimeter slices and gives our radiologists an image sharper than ever before. This imagery provides for easy and early detection of tissue anomalies, reduces false positive and the need for follow-up imaging.
Talk to your primary care physician or OB/GYN physician about getting screened and about Passavant’s 3D mammography service. We want to end breast cancer and save lives.
