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