Description of Service
Digital Mammography is a safe, low-dose X-ray that can detect very small changes in the breast, especially those that you or your healthcare provider cannot feel during a breast examination. It can detect 90-95 percent of all breast cancers. Radiologists use computer-aided detection (CAD) to further improve their ability to find even the smallest breast cancers at their earliest stages when there is the greatest chance of cure.
