Here is Renee's interview with Dr. Diana James, Director of Breast Imaging for Jefferson Radiology.
She discusses the importance of keeping up with your mammogram appointments and addresses common questions and concerns regarding the COVID-19 vaccine and mammogram results.
Why Mammography at Jefferson Radiology?
Jefferson Radiology offers the most advanced 3D Mammography technology available on the market today. This technology, called Genius™ mammography is offered at each of our locations.
Our exams provide better, earlier breast cancer detection compared to 2D alone and detect 20-65% more cancer. In fact, as many as 20% of breast cancers will be missed by 2D mammography. Greater accuracy means better breast cancer detection and a reduced chance of additional screenings.
