3-D Mammography in the Seattle regionNo one likes to think about the possibility of having breast cancer. But fear of breast cancer shouldn't keep you from getting your mammogram.

Mammography is the single most effective thing you can do to make sure that if you should have breast cancer, it's detected at its earliest and most treatable stages.

That's why the EvergreenHealth Breast Health Center was the first in King County to offer 3-D digital mammography imaging technology, known as tomosynthesis. This latest breakthrough in breast cancer detecting technology provides digital 3-D images of the breast that can spot cancers not seen by regular 2-D mammography.

That means catching cancer when it's most treatable. It's one of the reasons why our breast cancer treatment outcomes and long-term survival rates exceed the national averages:
