Breast Cancer Screening In Red Bluff

Beat the October Rush – Schedule Your Mammogram Early!

October is right around the corner. The world will be awash in pink, motivating women everywhere to schedule routine screenings for breast cancer – and for good reason. Breast cancer is the second leading cause of cancer death among women, exceeded only by lung cancer. Statistics indicate that one in eight women will develop breast cancer in her lifetime. The stage at which breast cancer is detected influences a woman’s chance of survival. If detected early, the five-year survival rate is 98 percent.

Breast Cancer Screening In Red BluffWhy not go into National Breast Cancer Awareness Month with your screening appointment completed? You can wear pink and smile, knowing you’ve done all you can to protect yourself.

Lassen Medical Clinic can help. Our state-of-the-art 3D Mammography (Breast Tomosynthesis) technology produces a three-dimensional view of the breast tissue that helps radiologists identify and characterize individual breast structures without the confusion of overlapping tissue. During a tomosynthesis exam, multiple, low-dose images of the breast are acquired at different angles. These images are then used to produce a series of one-millimeter thick slices that can be viewed as a 3D reconstruction of the breast.

3D Mammography combined with conventional 2D screening has a higher cancer detection rate than 2D mammography alone. Doctors can detect cancer in its earliest stages, reducing the number of false-positive recalls and making breast cancer nearly impossible to hide.

Lassen Medical’s system offers exceptionally sharp breast images, an advanced ergonomic design providing more patient comfort and the ground-breaking tomosynthesis platform designed to deliver superior screening and diagnostic performance.
