Sometimes there just aren’t enough hours in the day for your busy schedule. But the last thing that should be neglected is your health. One out of every eight women will develop breast cancer in their life, and mammograms are the most effective form of early detection. In honor of Breast Cancer Awareness Month, please join San Ramon Regional Medical Center to make time for your mammogram. We are offering extended hours for mammogram appointments every Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday throughout October. Call (833) 330-7394 to RSVP.
San Ramon Regional Medical Center now offers 3D mammography (breast tomosynthesis) for breast cancer screening. Breast cancer screening with tomosynthesis when combined with a conventional 2D mammography has a 40 percent higher invasive cancer detection rate than conventional 2D mammography alone.
“We are thrilled to offer this advanced technology that improves breast cancer detection rates and reduces the number of false positives,” said Ann Lucena, CEO of San Ramon Regional Medical Center. “The stage at which breast cancer is detected influences a woman’s chance of survival. We encourage every woman to get routine screenings in order to detect and treat cancers as early as possible.”
San Ramon Regional’s new ASPIRE Cristalle with Digital Breast Tomosynthesis (DBT) system offers exceptionally sharp breast images, and an advanced design providing more patient comfort. The ground-breaking tomosynthesis platform is designed to deliver superior screening and diagnostic performance for all breast types. It produces a three-dimensional view of the breast tissue that helps radiologists identify and characterize individual breast structures without the confusion of overlapping tissue.
