FREDERICKSBURG, VA – June 1, 2017 – In conjunction with its radiology partners, Radiologic Associates of Fredericksburg, Medical Imaging of Fredericksburg is pleased to announce that it is expanding the availability of 3D mammograms in our region to make this powerful detection tool available to more women. New 3D Mammography equipment has now been been installed at Lee’s Hill.
3D mammography has been available at the Imaging Center for Women in central Fredericksburg for over a year, and the demand has continued to grow. MIF is expanding the number of locations where this scan is available. 3D is now available at Lee’s Hill and the Imaging Center for Women, and in August it will also become available at the new Imaging Center for Women opening in North Stafford.
“Getting a 3D mammogram is what I recommend to my family members, and what I receive as a patient myself,” said Dr. Catherine Buhler, a fellowship trained women’s imaging radiologist with Radiology Associates of Fredericksburg.
3D mammograms require the same length of time for the screening process, but provide a much clearer image resulting in 35% better cancer detection and fewer call backs. This is possible because of advanced computer software and image capture system that collects up to 15 images instead of just one, with the same or less radiation.
Appointments are now available for 3D mammograms at Medical Imaging at Lee’s Hill. For more information, please call 540-741-XRAY or go to mifimaging.com/3d-mammograms.
