Valley County Health System provides the latest advanced technology in the fight against breast cancer -- 3D mammography. Performed in conjunction with monthly self-breast examinations and an annual physical breast exam from your medical provider, getting a mammogram can help detect breast cancer in its early, more treatable stages.
The Department of Health and Human Services recommend women have a screening mammogram by the age of 40, sooner if you have a family history of breast cancer. Mammography is the best screening tool that doctors have for finding breast cancer. If it's found early, the chances of survival and the treatments available are greatly improved.
Our new 3D mammography technology provides patients with clearer, more accurate imaging. Research shows that, compared to digital mammography, 3D mammography increases the finding of invasive cancers and reduces callbacks.
