IT CAN TAKE A TEAM OF HIGHLY TRAINED PRO­FES­SION­ALS TO EVAL­U­ATE SOME­THING THIS SMALL

ME - - Age of Reason -

This is how small a breast ab­nor­mal­ity can be — some­times even smaller. For­tu­nately the vast ma­jor­ity are harm­less. But it’s crit­i­cal to be able to iden­tify breast ab­nor­mal­i­ties which are po­ten­tially fa­tal. That’s where Goul­burn Val­ley Imag­ing Group comes in. With a team of ded­i­cated pro­fes­sion­als in­clud­ing ra­di­ol­o­gists, nurses, tech­ni­cians and ad­min­is­tra­tive staff, GV Imag­ing and Echuca Ra­di­ol­ogy are Shep­par­ton and Echuca’s only ac­cred­ited Breast Imag­ing Fa­cil­i­ties. The tech­nol­ogy at our dis­posal rep­re­sents the lead­ing edge of med­i­cal science. Our Mi­croDose Mam­mog­ra­phy Unit max­imises the im­age qual­ity, pick­ing up ab­nor­mal­i­ties much ear­lier and uses only half the dose of ra­di­a­tion com­pared to other sys­tems. It is pre­dicted 1 in 9 Aus­tralian women de­velop Breast Can­cer at some stage of their lives so it is bet­ter to be proac­tive and Mam­mo­grams and Ul­tra­sounds are sim­ple tests. GV Imag­ing Group also rec­om­mends that ev­ery woman should con­duct a monthly breast self ex­am­i­na­tion. If even the slight­est lump or change (dim­pling or dis­charge) is no­ticed, con­sult your doc­tor.

That’s be­cause it’s of­ten the small things that re­ally mat­ter.
