Screening mammograms are a proactive (preventative) test to detect breast cancer. They are covered by insurance and are recommended to be performed annually on women over 40 years of age. Screening mammograms are designed to detect cancer at an earlier, more treatable stage.
3D screening mammography is available at our centers. This technology has been shown to improve the detection rate by up to 40%, with fewer false positives and call-backs. It is also an excellent test for women with dense breasts, as it can detect smaller and more aggressive cancers.
