COVID19 VACCINATIONS & SCHEDULING A MAMMOGRAM
Saint Clare’s Women’s Health Center at Saint Clare’s Dover Hospital is pleased to offer 3D mammography, also known as digital breast tomosynthesis. This diagnostic tool, which offers the lowest dose of radiation available, can detect small breast tumors by taking multiple, digital images of the breast allowing for enhanced examination of breast tissue aiding in early detection.
Patient comfort is a highlight of this technology. The environment and the technology promote a sense of calm with elegant lighting and a soft-curved surface that may reduce anxiety and discomfort. The machine’s soft armrests have replaced older grips, so rather than tensing muscles to hold a hand grip, patients can rest their arm comfortably and relax their muscles.
Patients who may benefit from 3D mammography include those who are at high-risk for developing breast cancer and/or have a history of needing follow-up diagnostic mammograms after a routine, annual screening.
This technology, along with Saint Clare’s specialty-trained staff, offer the latest in early detection in an environment that is focused on the patient. Our radiologists are board certified, specializing in mammography and the early detection of breast cancer, and our Women’s Health Center staff are trained to care for the breast patient. If surgical services are needed, Saint Clare’s offers breast surgical services from specialty-trained breast surgeons.
