WHAT: St. Luke’s Mariner Medical Clinic is excited to celebrate being the first and only clinic in Superior to add state-of-the-art 3D mammography technology by hosting a ribbon cutting ceremony. The Clinic recently added a 3D mammography machine. Having a mammogram is the best way to detect breast cancer early and leads to the most success in treatment. A 3D mammogram is even better than a 2D mammogram. While a 2D mammogram takes 2 photos of each breast, a 3D mammogram takes 15 photos of each breast to provide a three-dimensional image, making any abnormalities easier to identify. The increased number of pictures also means having fewer callbacks for additional pictures and is proven to detect more-invasive breast cancers sooner.
