This cutting edge technology also requires less breast compression time, providing you with a more comfortable exam and a lower radiation dose. Mammograms save lives by diagnosing breast cancer in the earliest stages, when treatments are more effective. In general, annual mammograms are recommended for all women beginning at age 40 however, talk with your doctor about what is best for you based on your individual health.
3D Stereotactic Breast Biopsy

The Association of Alexandria Radiologists offers patients access to the world’s first 3D breast biopsy option. This new technology provides a highly detailed view of the breast tissue including very small tumors, which are not visible with traditional 2D technology.
