Baptist Memorial Hospital-Union City (BMH-UC) is now offering a new technology that could improve early detection of breast cancer. Digital breast tomosynthesis, also known as 3-D mammography, allows a radiologist to look for abnormalities in more areas than the 2-D mammography. 3-D mammography is especially beneficial to patients with dense breast tissue, a family history of breast cancer or women who are regularly called back for additional tests.

The new technology does not increase the amount of time it takes to screen women, and there is no additional discomfort. “Baptist Memorial Hospital-Union City takes a proactive and comprehensive approach to breast health services. Our new breast imaging system is one of the most exciting recent advancements in breast cancer detection. 3-D mammography is a revolutionary screening tool in the fight against breast cancer,” said Skipper Bondurant, BMH-UC administrator and CEO.
