Pioneered by Solis Mammography, this new 3D mammogram technology creates multiple slices of breast images for specialized evaluation. McMorries has partnered with Solis to engage a team of fellowship-trained, dedicated breast radiologists to interpret the results and provide diagnostics for our patients. We offer the revolutionary SmartCurve technology which employs a curved mammogram, shaped like your breast for greater comfort. An integrated Artificial Intelligence (AI)-driven, Computer-Aided-Detection (CAD) post-processing is performed on all screening mammography images as a second step to a specialized breast radiologists’ interpretation.
How often should you receive a mammogram? Most women begin having annual mammograms at age 40. If you have known risk-factors, or a family history that may impact your breast cancer risk, we may recommend a mammogram earlier than age 40.
Early detection is an important aspect of treating breast cancer. Some breast cancers can develop within a year, and those that do tend to metastasize early. Getting into the habit of having an annual mammogram at the same time every year is the best practice for long-term health and peace of mind.
*A screening mammogram is an annual exam to screen for breast cancer in women without symptoms. Should additional evaluation be recommended, a small percentage of screening mammogram patients will be “called back” for a diagnostic mammogram at a different location.
