DIGITAL MAMMOGRAPHY IS CLEARLY BETTER.
Texas Health Presbyterian-WNJ is now providing the newest, most advanced generation of digital mammography - and digital makes a difference. Digital is significantly better at detecting cancer than conventional film mammography, especially in women under 50 and women of any age with dense breasts. This state-of-the-art screening option also offers less exposure to radiation and quicker results. Sharper, more accurate scans, quicker results, and the best equipment mean that our renowned staff of fellowship trained radiologists will have the highest quality information available to assist with your preventative health care.
Mammograms are the best screening tool available to detect breast cancer at its earliest, most treatable stages. The American Cancer Society recommends that women should have a baseline mammogram between ages 35-40. Beginning at age 40, women should have an annual mammogram. This type of study can often detect breast cancers before they can be felt.
