Genius 3D Mammography
Regional Health Medical Clinic North 10th Street in Spearfish now offers Genius 3D Mammography. The new technology improves early detection and treatment of breast cancer.Using this three-dimensional technology, radiologists can better detect breast cancer even deep within the tissue, where it might be hidden during a traditional two-dimensional mammogram.
In addition, the Genius 3D Mammography exam finds 20 to 65 percent more of the invasive breast cancers, where early detection is critical to recovery. With 3D's clarity and depth, fewer patients will have to return for second mammograms. Now, 2D images will show something suspicious or ambiguous, and follow-up mammograms are required. Patients with dense breasts, such as younger women, will have a much better chance of early detection with 3D mammography. Call 717-8674 to schedule your screening appointment.
