The Breast Imaging Department combines mammography with instruction in self-examination to promote early detection of breast cancer. This allows treatment of breast disease at the earliest, most curable stage. Women meeting the American Cancer Society guidelines and without any breast problems can schedule their own screening mammogram appointment.
McFarland Clinic mammograms are not only read by an accredited radiologist, but the images are also analyzed by computer aided detection (CAD). CAD assists the radiologist by giving a computerized second review of your mammograms to draw attention to potential areas of concern. Digital Mammography is the most advanced technology available in breast cancer screening and prevention.
