Sansum Clinic provides a full spectrum of medical imaging services using state-of-the-art diagnostic technology including digital mammography, digital Breast Biopsy, MRI, and ultrasonography. Sansum Clinic was the first facility in the County to incorporate the first Digital mammography in 2000, performing 75 to 80 mammogram procedures per day.
Digital Mammography and Accuracy
Digital mammography provides the highest resolution available along with the ability to enhance the image digitally through magnification, brightness, contrast etc. Digital mammograms are more accurate for women under the age of 50, for women with dense breasts and for those who are premenopausal or perimenopausal.
Sharing of Digital Mammograms
Additionally, images can be transmitted to other health providers electronically making it possible to view the results simultaneously by more than one physician. This means that your surgeon, oncologist, and radiologist can all review the results and consult on possible treatment options. Even if each is located in a different building.
Digital Mammograms Save Time
Digital mammography also significantly reduces callbacks. Currently, with traditional film mammography, many patients are recalled for additional imaging because the initial mammogram was not clear in one or more areas. Studies show that fewer patients are recalled for additional imaging after digital mammography. In addition to decreasing the number of women who have to experience the anxiety of a recall procedure, fewer recall exams also means less radiation exposure.
