Mercy Offers 3D Mammography at Two Locations
Mercy Breast Center now offers 3D Tomosynthesis Mammography for women who are at high risk for breast cancer or who have dense breast tissue. The 3D Tomosynthesis Mammogram can detect breast cancer at early stages because of all the images available to the radiologist. It also helps reduce the number of false positives for breast cancer, so women don't have to return for additional screening mammograms.
If you have a history of breast cancer or someone in your family who has had breast cancer, be sure to ask for the 3D mammogram when you schedule your annnual mammogram. It is available at the Mercy Breast Center at Clayton-Clarkson and at Mercy Breast Center - Tower A on the Mercy Hospital campus.

If you are diagnosed, your care team may include radiologists, surgeons, a mammographer and an oncology nurse navigator, a registered nurse who serves as a coordinator throughout every step of detection and diagnosis of breast cancer. All of our technologists are certified in mammography and are licensed by the American Registry of Radiologic Technologists.
