New 3D Mammogram Installed in Mandurah
Global Diagnostics has installed a new Hologic 3D mammography system at the Peel Specialist Centre. This state-of-the-art machine is the only 3D mammogram proven to detect 20-65% more invasive breast cancers than a standard 2D mammogram machine.
With a less than 4 second scan time, this low dose exam has the fastest scan time of all mammography systems. It offers a new ‘SmartCurve’ breast stabilisation system, which is more comfortable and preferred by more women over the standard flat-paddle compressions of traditional mammography machines.
Like traditional mammography, 3D mammography uses X-rays to produce images of breast tissue in order to detect lumps, tumours or other abnormalities. 3D mammography is capable of producing more detailed images of breast tissue, especially for dense breasts.
3D captures multiple slices of the breast, all at different angles. The images are brought together to create crystal clear 3D reconstruction of the breast. The Global Diagnostics’ radiologist doctor is then able to review the reconstruction, one slide at a time, almost like turning pages in a book. This makes it easier for doctors to see if there’s anything to be concerned about.
Global Diagnostics is committed to bringing cutting edge technology to the people of the peel region. For more information please call 9584 6700.
