LOUISVILLE MAGAZINE 8.14 91 Special Advertising Section www.womensdiagnosticcenter.com Yearly mammograms are recommended starting at age 40 and continuing for as long as a woman is in good health. It's not only important to have those mammograms, but to be sure you are getting the best mammograms technology has to ofer. Women's Diagnostic Center's experienced radiologists have been using 3D mammography since 2012, providing patients the opportunity to fnd breast cancer that traditional mammograms alone miss. With 3D mammography, the physicians at Women's Diagnostic Center can see breast tissue in a way never before possible. Instead of viewing all the complexities of a breast in a fat 2D image, 3D shows fne detail more clearly, no longer hidden by overlapping tissue. Women who choose 3D mammograms can be surer sooner as early data indicates a 15 percent increase in cancer detection and a 30 percent reduction in recalls. Tat means signifcantly less patient anxiety due to greater accuracy and the ability to distinguish harmless abnormalities from real tumors. According to Dr. Art McLaughlin, Medical Director for Women's Diagnostic Center, "One in eight women will develop breast cancer, and if we can fnd it early the fve- year survival rate is 97 percent. Our goal with 3D mammography is to ofer early detection even earlier. It's quick, specifcally designed for patient comfort and unquestionably the best tool available in the fght against breast cancer." For more information about 3D mammography, contact Women's Diagnostic Center at (502) 893-1333 or visit WomensDiagnosticCenter.com.
