3D / TOMO Mammography
One of the most exciting things offered in our facility is 3-D/TOMO mammograms,
which may provide a more accurate picture of a woman's breast health
than traditional mammograms. Conventional mammograms produce images from
two different angles. 3-D/TOMO mammography, however, takes numerous images
as it moves in an arc over the breast of the patient. This creates much
more vivid images and allows physicians greater insight into the health
of the patient.
According to the American Cancer Society, women over the age of 40 should
receive a yearly screening mammogram and conduct monthly self-exams in
between. In addition to 3-D/TOMO mammograms, the Women's Center will
be offering ultrasound and Dexa scans.
To get more information on how you can schedule your mammogram or dexascan
at Huntsville Memorial, please call 936-439-4826. If you would like to
