St. Luke's Chequamegon Clinic Adds State-of-the-Art Genius 3D Mammography Exams
St. Luke’s Chequamegon Clinic in Ashland now offers Genius™ 3D mammography. Utilizing advanced breast tomosynthesis technology, 3D exams are clinically proven to significantly increase the detection of breast cancers, while simultaneously decreasing the number of women asked to return for additional testing.
In conventional 2D mammography, overlapping tissue is a leading reason why small breast cancers may be missed and normal tissue may appear abnormal, leading to unnecessary callbacks. This newest technology includes a three-dimensional method of imaging that can greatly reduce the tissue overlap effect.
3D mammography is recommended for women of all ages and breast densities. The system allows radiologists to more effectively pinpoint the size, shape and location of abnormalities. This leads to better detection and greater peace of mind for patients.
St. Luke’s Chequamegon Clinic is open Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. If you would like to schedule a 3D mammography exam, or have questions please call 715.685.6600. or visit www.slhduluth.com/Chequamegon.
