Mosaic Medical Center-Albany has announced the addition of 3D mammography technology.
The technology allows breast tissue to be examined layer-by-layer. That type of examination will allow fine details to be examined that will no longer be hidden by any tissue above or below it.
The American Cancer Society recommends breast cancer screenings for women between ages 40 to 44 every year. Actual mammograms are recommended every year for women ages 45 to 54. Women older than 55 can switch to a mammogram every other year or can choose to continue annual mammograms. Screening should continue as long as a woman is in good health and is expected to live at least 10 more years.
Beginning October 2, appointment times are available Monday – Friday. To schedule an appointment, call (660) 726-1226.
October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month.
