The newest advancement in digital mammography called breast tomosynthesis is revolutionizing how breast cancer is detected. Ultrasound Associates is proud to be one of the first healthcare providers in the area to offer breast tomosynthesis (3D mammography). 3D enables the radiologist to view inside the breast layer by layer and virtually eliminates the challenges associated with overlapping tissue in the breast. This improves the identification of cancer and reduces the need for patient callback. The inclusion of tomosynthesis is offered to all patients undergoing both screening and diagnostic mammography. It adds only seconds to the exam, and radiation exposure remains safely below the FDA and America College of Radiology (ACR) guidelines.
Alexandria’s 19th Annual Walk to Fight Breast Cancer was held on October 20, 2012. This year marks the tenth year Ultrasound Associates has participated in this event helping to raise funds and contribute free mammograms to area women in need. Ultrasound Associates was once again presented with an appreciation award for its contribution of free mammograms at the Annual Appreciation Breakfast held in conjunction with the Walk.
