New mammography technology is clinically proven to increase invasive cancer detection and reduce recall rates
Fort Collins, Colo. (PRWEB) April 21, 2017
The Women’s Clinic of Northern Colorado is excited to announce that they are now scheduling Genius™ 3D Breast Mammography screenings at their Fort Collins and Loveland locations. These state-of-the-art mammography screenings are clinically proven to significantly increase the detection of breast cancers and decrease the percentage of women asked back for additional testing, making for a more accurate and less stressful experience.
“As leaders in the delivery of women’s healthcare in Northern Colorado, The Women’s Clinic is excited to adopt revolutionary technology that allows us to continue to provide our patients with the highest level of care,” Helene Stout, Director of Business Services at The Women’s Clinic of Northern Colorado said.
In conventional two-dimensional mammography, overlapping tissue is a leading reason why small breast cancers may be missed and normal tissue may appear abnormal, leading to unnecessary callbacks. A Genius™ mammogram includes a three-dimensional method of imaging that greatly reduces the tissue overlap effect.
The Hologic system is a clinically superior breast tomosynthesis system approved by the FDA. Large clinical studies in the U.S. and Europe have demonstrated the positive benefits of a Genius™ 3D Mammogram.
The largest Genius™ breast cancer screening study to date was published in the June 25, 2014 issue of the Journal of the American Medical Association (JAMA).
- A 41 percent increase in the detection of invasive breast cancers
- A 29 percent increase in the detection of all breast cancers
- A 15 percent decrease in women recalled for additional imaging
The Women’s Clinic of Northern Colorado is committed to the fight against breast cancer, offering Genius™ mammography, a more accurate tool for breast cancer screening.
