Early detection is the best prevention.
Women should have regular mammograms beginning at age 40, or sooner if recommended by their healthcare provider. In collaboration with UnityPoint Health – St. Luke’s, we provide convenient and precise cancer screening and treatment.
Early detection is the best prevention when it comes to breast health. UnityPoint Health – St. Luke’s Breast and Bone Health uses the latest technology in digital mammography, Genius™ 3D Mammography™. Recent studies published in the Journal of the American Medical Association find that 3D mammography screens in greater detail and detects breast cancers at a greater rate than standard 2D mammography alone. The study shows that 3D Mammography detects 41 percent more invasive breast cancers. 3D Mammography has also led to a 15 percent decrease in recall rates and gives lower doses of radiation.
