The Breast Care Specialist Centre at Euxton Hall Hospital offers rapid assessment and diagnosis of breast conditions by experienced Consultant Breast Surgeons with appointments available Monday to Friday.
3 Dimensional Mammography
We utilise state of the art technology with 3 Dimensional Mammography, being one of the only private hospitals in the of North West to offer this.
The benefits of this are:
- More accurate detection: By minimizing the impact of overlapping breast tissue, 3D mammography can make a breast cancer easier to spot. Reviewing multiple images has helped doctors find more cancers than with 2D images alone.
- Earlier diagnosis: Overlapping tissue can hide small cancers in a 2D scan. However, with 3D mammography, the image “slices” can be analysed one by one. This means 3D mammography may help detect cancers earlier than conventional mammography.
- Better detection in dense breast tissue: Dense breast tissue, often found in younger women under 40, can cause shadows due to overlapping tissue, which hides breast cancers from traditional 2D mammography. 3D mammography takes images of the breast from multiple angles, thereby offering a cutting-edge look through and around breast tissue
