Mammography still the key to early detection
Mammography has been shown to have a significant impact on the early detection of breast cancer. The earlier breast cancer is found, the better the chances that treatment will work. Advances in digital imaging technology have led to even greater detection rates, particularly in women with dense breasts where traditional 2D mammography imaging may be inconclusive.
Innovative Diagnostic and Treatment Options
John Muir Health offers a broad array of screening options, including revolutionary 3D mammography that improves early detection rates and reduces the number of patient callbacks with traditional 2D mammography. When treatment of breast cancer becomes necessary, we are experienced in the latest medical and surgical interventions designed to improve survival rates and maintain quality of life.
