New Screening For Breast Cancer – AMI First In State To Offer It

I lost my aunt to breast cancer.

I know too many people who have been affected by it.

Some good news out of Bozeman Deaconess Hospital today.

Advanced Medical Imaging (AMI), located in the Bozeman Deaconess Health Services complex, will be the first breast imaging center in Montana to offer tomosynthesis, or 3D imaging, for breast cancer screening.

“We believe breast tomosynthesis will benefit all mammography patients, and is especially valuable for women with dense breast tissue,” said AMI breast care specialist, Cindy Carter PA-C, CBPN-IC.

Breast tomosynthesis is a revolutionary technology that allows radiologists to identify and characterize individual breast structures without the confusion of overlapping tissue. During a tomosynthesis exam, multiple breast images are taken in just seconds to produce a 3D image.

With this new technology, AMI hopes to increase the number of women who will be routinely screened.

Statistics indicate that one in eight women will develop breast cancer at some point in her lifetime.
