One in eight women will get breast cancer in their lifetime. Early detection saves lives.
Mammograms and other breast imaging technologies are used to look for cancers of the breast. Advanced imaging technology is used for both annual screenings and for treatment after a lump or other symptom of breast cancer has been found.
Based on new Connecticut legislation, new screening protocols are in place now. Women who have a screening mammography, and are found to have dense breast tissue, are entitled to a screening breast ultrasound.
Additionally, those who have a family history of breast disease should receive a screening breast MRI (magnetic resonance imaging). This more comprehensive screening program empowers women with better information, imaging, and risk assessment calculations. Regular screening mammograms after age 40 are a key preventative step.
Schedule your annual screening now or call 203-739-4999.
