Lake County Record-Bee

St. Helena Hospital Clear Lake has brought the latest breast cancer screening technology to Clearlake. With the hospital’s new cutting-edge 3D mammography service, Lake County women now have access to clearer images and pinpoint accuracy proven to increase cancer detection rates. The medical imaging team provided a 3D mammography screening to their first patient on June 1.

Studies have shown that 3D Mammography, otherwise known as Digital Breast Tomosynthesis (DBT), provides greater accuracy in pinpointing the size, shape and location of tumors, especially for women with dense breast tissue.
