Nacogdoches Medical Center’s (NMC) Loma Laird Cancer Center will host dedication and ribbon-cutting ceremonies for its new 3D Mammography Program, the first to be offered for women in Nacogdoches.
3-D digital screening mammography is cutting-edge, state-of-the-art technology used to detect breast cancer. 3-D mammography exams allow a radiologist to examine breast tissue layer by layer. Instead of viewing all the complexities of breast tissue in a flat image, the radiologist can see the fine details that may have been hidden on a conventional 2-D exam. Earlier detection of breast cancer and fewer callbacks for additional diagnostic imaging are among the advantages of 3-D mammography.
Early detection through mammogram screenings, increased public awareness of breast cancer and improved treatments have helped reduce the rate of death from breast cancer in the United States. Mammogram screenings can detect breast cancer when it is smaller and more confined to the breast, allowing the cancer to be treated more easily
