Digital Mammography in Walker County
Powerful Diagnostics at Huntsville Memorial Hospital
According to www.breastcancer.org, 1 in 8 women in U.S. will develop breast
cancer during their lifetime. Many of these women will not a family history
of the disease either—which means that vigilance is needed to detect
this cancer as early as possible. The five-year survival rate for breast
cancer is more than 90% if it is caught early. These survival rates decrease
when the cancer is allowed to mature and spread.
If you are a woman over 40, it is recommended that you receive a yearly
mammogram. At our Huntsville Memorial Hospital Radiology Department, we
offer the latest in digital mammography testing, helping ensure that our
patients can continue to monitor and address their breast health. For
