3D Mammography used for the prevention and early detection of breast cancer
Non-Invasive tech gives hope for early detection of prostate cancer
We believe 3D mammography will benefit all patients in our breast program DR DREW MCMENAMIN
Gympie Radiology offers 3D mammography examinations to women living in the Gympie, Mary Valley and Wide Bay region. This newer technology produces multiple images of the breast at 1mm slices, shown in clinical studies to be significantly superior to traditional 2D mammography. 3D mammography enables radiologists to identify and characterise individual breast structures without the confusion of overlapping tissue, which can result in false positive findings with traditional 2D mammography. Research shows up to 40% more women will be spared the anxiety of being recalled for an unnecessary biopsy or further imaging with 3D mammography. “We believe 3D mammography will benefit all patients in our breast program. The advantage of the latest 3D technology is the dose savings for our patients compared with previous generation 3D machines” says Radiologist, Dr Drew McMenamin. “The majority of referrals are Medicare eligible and there will be no out of pocket cost”. Gympie Radiology’s Women’s Imaging Department integrates the use of 3D mammography, breast ultrasound, breast MRI and interventional procedures to offer a complete range of breast imaging services. Please consult your GP or specialist for more information.
