Lakeside Women's Hospital

Your first line of defense against breast cancer.

A Strong Case For Screening

Today’s facts leave a lot to be hopeful about. About 300,000 new cases of breast cancer may be diagnosed this year. But 90 percent of breast cancer cases can be successfully treated if detected early. That’s why at Lakeside Women's Hospital we not only encourage you to get a mammogram each year if you’re over 40, we also bring you the latest, most accurate, life-saving breast imaging technology. That means that we can reduce false positives and find over 40% more invasive cancers at earlier, more treatable stages.

The Lakeside Difference

Getting a mammogram is a highly personal experience. At Lakeside Women's Hospital, we understand that. You may feel vulnerable and a little scared, but few clinics offer the level of professional competence and the compassionate touch that make a world of difference in a woman’s health journey. Our experience, expertise, and compassionate team create a comfortable environment for this vital breast exam.

Self-Care

Changes in your breasts are often early warning signs. Checking your breasts yourself at least once a month not only helps you have a good idea of what they should look and feel like – it means you’ll know right away if something changes. Any changes should be reported to your doctor and followed up on. Changes could include a new lump or mass, swelling, skin indentation on your breast, redness, or nipple discharge.

Mammography

One in eight women will develop breast cancer in her lifetime. However, 90 percent of breast cancers can be treated successfully if the cancer is detected early. Mammograms are one of the most effective weapons for early detection. At Lakeside Women's Imaging, we screen and diagnose cancer in many ways. Our facility currently provides 2D and 3D mammography with new screening and diagnostic tools designed for early breast cancer detection.

The more you know about breast cancer the more likely you are to detect it early

3D Mammography

3D mammography provides an exceptionally sharp and detailed picture for breast cancer detection and diagnosis at the same radiation dose as standard 2D mammography.

3D Mammography™ is a revolutionary new screening and diagnostic tool designed for early breast cancer detection that can be done in conjunction with a traditional 2D digital mammogram.

During the 3D part of the exam, the X-ray arm sweeps in a slight arc over your breast, taking multiple breast images. Then, a computer produces a 3D image of your breast tissue in one millimeter slices, providing greater visibility for the radiologist to see breast detail in a way never before possible. They can scroll through images of your entire breast like pages of a book.

The additional 3D images make it possible for a radiologist to gain a better understanding of your breast tissue during screening and the confidence to reduce the need for follow-up imaging.

3D Mammography™ complements standard 2D mammography and is performed at the same time with the same system. There is no additional compression required, and it only takes a few more seconds longer for each view.

It is approved for all women who would be undergoing a standard mammogram, in both the screening and diagnostic settings.

Please call 855-MY-MAMMO to schedule your annual screening mammogram appointment.

A screening mammogram is your annual mammogram that is done every year. Sometimes the radiologist may ask you to come back for follow-up images, which is called a diagnostic mammogram, to rule out an unclear area in the breast or if there is a breast complaint that needs to be evaluated.

With conventional digital mammography, the radiologist is viewing all the complexities of your breast tissue in one flat image. Sometimes breast tissue can overlap, giving the illusion of normal breast tissue looking like an abnormal area.

By looking at the breast tissue in one millimeter slices, the radiologist can provide a more confident assessment.1 In this way, 3D Mammography™ finds cancers missed with conventional 2D mammography. It also means there is less chance your doctor will call you back later for a “second look,” because now they can see breast tissue more clearly.
