Citizens Baptist Medical Center has installed a 3D Mammography machine, an imaging test that combines multiple breast X-rays to create a three-dimensional picture of the breast. When utilized for breast cancer screening, a 3D Mammography machines create three- dimensional images in addition to standard two-dimensional mammogram images.
Studies show that combining 3D mammograms with standard mammograms can reduce the need for additional imaging and may increase the number of cancers detected during screening.
“We’re thrilled to have this technology,” said Frank Thomas, CEO. “This will have a transformative impact on our hospital, our medical staff and the patients we serve.”
