According to the American Cancer Society, the five-year relative survival rate for women with stage 0 or stage 1 breast cancer is 99 percent. This is why ELFP follows the ACS’s recommendation that all women over 40 years of age have a mammogram performed annually. And it’s why we offer the latest, most advanced imaging technology at the lowest cost possible.
Our state-of-the-art Pink Ribbon Imaging Center houses two of the state’s Genius 3D Mammography machines. This technology is proven to detect more invasive breast cancers and decrease inaccurate reports and false alarms of normal results. This means that it often reduces the number of unnecessary biopsies for patients and provides clearer results for radiologists to analyze. Contact us to learn more about our 3D mammogram screenings.
How Do I Prepare?
Women should consider scheduling mammography for a date one week after their period begins. A bare torso is required for the test, so wearing comfortable, easy-to-remove clothing is recommended. Avoid applying perfume, deodorant, or lotion before your test.
We must obtain prior mammogram films on any patient who has not received imaging in our mammography department. Proper readings cannot be completed without them.
