Good Morning! Grab a coffee and the BDN, bottom of the front page …

St. Joseph Regional Breast Care Center now has 3D mammography for the women in our communities.

The precise imaging produced by 3D mammography has definite potential for saving lives. It can find problem growths in the breast much earlier, at a stage when cancer, if found, is most successfully treated.

3D detects more cancers and it reduces the number of false-positive results given to patients. In most non-cancer cases 3D mammography by itself can ensure the patient is cancer-free, ruling out the need to be called back and wait for a biopsy.

It also offers clear imaging even in women, particularly young women, who have dense breast tissue, which can sometimes render conventional mammography ineffective.
