Mammography

Salem Radiology is committed to the fight against breast cancer. By offering women the latest technology in mammography, we hope to increase the number of area women who will be routinely screened.

Breast cancer is the second leading cause of cancer death among women, exceeded only by lung cancer. Statistics indicate that one in eight women will develop breast cancer sometime in her lifetime. The stage at which breast cancer is detected influences a woman’s chance of survival. According to the American Cancer Society, if detected early, the five-year survival rate is 98%.

At Salem Radiology, your breast health is our top priority. That’s why we now offer 3D Mammography – the most exciting advancement in breast cancer detection in more than 30 years. 3D mammography, also known as tomosynthesis, creates multiple images in mere seconds and enables our board-certified radiologists to examine tissue in detail never before possible. And that means we can detect cancer sooner, when it’s more treatable.
