State-of-the-Art Mammograms Improve Accuracy

The words “breast cancer” can create considerable anxiety — and understandably so. Breast cancer is the second leading cause of death among women, and one in eight women will receive a diagnosis of breast cancer. We understand the stress you may experience as you get tested and evaluated, and we’re here to reassure you and provide peace of mind.

Carris Health Imaging offers state-of-the-art 3D mammograms. 3D mammograms use the same X-ray technology as “2D” mammograms, however, 3D mammography provides images of the breast in “slices” from many different angles, helping the radiologist see all around and in between the breast tissues, which can mean better cancer detection and fewer false alarms. This is especially valuable for women with dense breasts.

Carris Health in Willmar and Redwood Falls offer 3D mammography as the standard with mammogram appointments. 2D mammograms are still available. While many insurance providers cover 3D mammograms, it is not always covered. We recommend that you check with your insurance provider to find out exactly what is covered under your individual plan.
