Breast Health Center
Mammography is the single most effective thing you can do to make sure breast cancer is detected at its earliest and most treatable stages.
That's why EvergreenHealth has been the regional leader in providing Genius 3-D digital mammography imaging technology, which can spot cancers before they are seen by regular 2-D mammography.
Our mammography locations offer all 3-D mammography, which is why our breast cancer treatment outcomes and long-term survival rates exceed the national averages.
All 3-D mammography is performed by specially-trained breast radiologists, backed by computer-aided detection.
The benefits of Genius 3-D mammography
While there are many benefits to 3-D mammography, the top two are:
Detecting breast cancer at its earliest stages. Since we began offering 3-D mammography, EvergreenHealth is seeing a 10% increase in detection of breast cancer that would not have been detected using 2-D mammography.
Peace of mind afforded by greater accuracy at the initial screening. With 3-D mammography, patients at EvergreenHealth experienced a 25% decrease in call-backs, resulting in greater peace of mind.
Who should get the Genius 3-D mammogram?
3-D mammography benefits all screening mammography patients, and is considered especially appropriate for:
- Baseline, screening mammogram
- Women 40-60 years of age
- Women with dense, fibroglandular breast tissue
- Women with personal history of breast cancer
