New 3-D Mammography Saves Lives

3-D mammograms provide the clearest, most detailed view of breast tissue available. They help detect breast cancer earlier and more accurately than traditional 2-D mammography.

Lexington Medical Center was the first hospital in the Midlands to offer this revolutionary new technology. We now offer 3-D mammography at five convenient locations, with a goal of providing it throughout the hospital’s network of care by 2019.

  • Women’s Imaging Center at Lexington Medical Center, West Columbia
  • Lexington Women’s Care Sandhills, Northeast Columbia
  • Lexington Medical Center Lexington
  • Lexington Medical Center Irmo
  • Lexington Medical Center Mobile Mammography Van

Call (803) 791-2486 to schedule an appointment.

 

3-D Mammography Offers Clear Advantages


  • Detects lesions as small as 2mm
  • Can detect 40 percent more cancers than 2-D mammography
  • Reduces patient callbacks by 15 percent
  • Offers 29 percent improvement in overall cancer detection rates
  • Reduces false positives up to 40 percent
  • Allows radiologists to see masses and distortions associated with cancers significantly more clearly than conventional 2-D
  • Reduces the need for additional imaging in order to better visualize tissue up to 40 percent, compared to 2-D mammography

Breast Imaging Center of Excellence

We know if we can detect breast cancer early, we often have the ability to completely control — even sometimes fully cure — it. That’s why getting a digital mammogram at our ACR-certified Breast Imaging Center of Excellence is fast, comfortable and easy.

While we have four convenient screening locations, we perform all diagnostic mammograms on our main campus within our well-appointed, state-of-the-art equipped Women’s Imaging Center. Mammograms are performed by AART-certified and state-licensed technologists and digital images are read by on-site board-certified radiologists. We also perform cyst aspirations and core biopsies on the main campus.

In addition to our Five-Day Detection to Diagnosis program, our patients have the benefit of having their case discussed within a weekly Interdisciplinary Breast Conference. The group — comprised of surgeons, medical oncologists, pathologists, breast radiologists, plastic surgeons and radiation oncologists — discusses diagnosis and treatment options for new and ongoing cases.
