Digital Mammography is redefining the way women’s healthcare is delivered and provides a new option in breast health. The key role of digital mammography is to identify breast cancer in its development when it is very small. This is often a year or two before it is felt by your healthcare provider. Mammography detects about 2-3 times as many early breast cancers as a physical examination.
Stereotactic Biopsy uses a computer to enable healthcare providers to locate and obtain a sample of a questionable area on a mammogram. Because this procedure can be done in radiology on an out-patient basis, it is rapidly replacing surgical biopsy. Women who undergo stereotactic biopsy can take comfort in knowing that the procedure is safe, simple and only mildly uncomfortable.
