CentraCare – Sauk Centre Now Offering 3D Mammography

Published in Breast Care, Cancer Care, Media Releases

CentraCare – Sauk Centre is pleased to announce that patients now have the ability to schedule 3D mammograms. 3D mammography is the best tool for providing increased accuracy, earlier diagnosis, and reducing false reports and the need to additional scans. 3D imaging produces less shadows in the breast, which confirms healthy tissue and increases the accuracy for diagnosis. The American Cancer Society recommends an initial mammogram for women at age 40, and every year afterwards, unless there are other risk concerns.

"This is exciting," commented Mark Dingmann, Manager, Imaging Services for the Western Region. "We have been planning for this and are now able to offer the very latest in mammography technology to our local patients, which is extremely important for area community members."

Women have the flexibility to continue with traditional mammogram or to utilize 3D. CentraCare recommends that individuals confirm coverage with their insurance provider.
