#SmailCares - Excela Health 3D Mammography (October 2017)


Smail Auto Group will donate $125 for every vehicle sold during the month of October to various local breast cancer charities and organizations. One of the groups Smail has donated to over the years has been the breast cancer team at Excela Health.

Take some time to view this video and learn a little more about their new 3D Mammography technology, and how it helps in the fight against breast cancer.

Because multiple images are taken within seconds, a 3D image is produced and allows the radiologist to see more detail inside the breast in a way not possible until now. Other benefits include: Better view of tissue, even in women with dense breasts. Improves the radiologist’s ability to detect potential breast cancers more readily. Can lead to fewer false positive readings translating to fewer call-backs and less anxiety for women. Fine details are visible more clearly, not hidden by tissue above and below a given area. 3D - Walk-In Wednesdays Now your screening mammogram is made easier in 3D! No appointment needed.
