ARLINGTON, Texas— Patients visiting Texas Health Presbyterian Hospital Plano can now add an advanced breast imaging technology — 3D mammography — to a traditional digital mammogram for $99.
New 3D mammography is improving the way doctors screen for potential breast cancers. Women screened with 3D mammography, called breast tomosynthesis, have shown a 47 percent increase in cancer detection compared to 2D mammography alone, according to a recent study. MORE
As important as obstetrical and newborn services are to most women of childbearing age, other issues gather significance with the passing of years. That's why Texas Health Presbyterian Hospital Plano also is committed to addressing the concerns of women in midlife and beyond.
One of the most crucial of these concerns is breast health. The women's services program at Texas Health Plano emphasizes breast health and offers care in breast cancer prevention, education, detection and treatment by physicians on the medical staff.
If you're among the millions of women concerned about breast cancer, this program is a reassuring source of hope.
