Breast Cancer Awareness Month

October Is Breast Cancer Awareness Month

October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month. The physicians and staff of Advanced Medical Imaging want to remind you that early detection is a woman’s best defense.  Breast cancer is the second leading cause of cancer death among women, exceeded only by lung cancer. Statistics demonstrate that one in eight women will develop breast cancer sometime in her lifetime and the stage at which breast cancer is detected influences a woman’s survival.

Advanced Medical Imaging offers cutting-edge digital mammography technology at both of its convenient locations in Old Bridge and Toms River, NJ.   This advanced screening tool aids in the early detection of breast cancer, when it is critical for successful diagnosis and treatment.  Digital technology also allows the clinician to store each image in a computer where it can be enhanced, magnified, or manipulated for further evaluation all while delivering less radiation and faster results than conventional mammography.

The American Cancer Society recommends that woman over 40 receive screening mammograms every year. However, those who are at increased risk due to a genetic history of breast cancer should seek expert medical advice about whether they should begin screening before age 40 and the frequency and type of screening needed.

To schedule a digital mammogram, please contact us at either of our convenient locations:
