The Latest from WHS
Mammograms Are Now Available in the Convenience of Our Office
At WHS, we use the latest in mammogram technology. All the equipment is FDA approved and we only use digital equipment which is the best technology available. Thus, the image is displayed on a video monitor and read by a radiologist.
American Cancer Society recommends:
Women age 40 and older should have a screening mammogram every year, and should continue to do so for as long as they are in good health.
A screening mammogram is an x-ray exam of the breast on a woman who has no
symptoms. The goal of a screening mammogram is to find cancer when it is
still too small to be felt by a woman or her doctor. Finding small breast
cancers early by a screening mammogram greatly improves a woman’s chance for
successful treatment. A screening mammogram usually takes 2 x-ray pictures
(views) of each breast. (article continues...)
