1. A Mammogram: Possibly the Best-Known Women’s Imaging Service
When we think of women’s imaging, we most often think of mammograms.
When it comes to mammograms, there’s a new technology in town and it shows great promise in early breast cancer detection. 3D mammograms are becoming a wide-spread tool in combating breast cancer. Approved in 2011 by the FDA, 3D mammograms’ radiation exposure is only slightly higher than the regular 2D mammogram, and takes about the same amount of time.
To raise awareness about breast cancer, this month Washington Heritage Museums and the Imaging Center for Women, are encouraging community members to participate in the “Mary’s Ribbons, Tie One On” event. Remember, honor and encourage others to get annual mammograms beginning at age 40, by tying a ribbon on the white fence outside the Mary Washington House.
