Granite Falls Health is excited to offer a new imaging service to their patients. Beginning on September 18, 2019, breast imaging with a 3D Mammography™ Exam will be available, and we are taking appointments now.
New 3D Mammography™ Exams Increase Comfort
Genius™ 3D Mammography™ exams have revolutionized breast cancer screening. Millions of women have already benefitted from this breakthrough exam. Granite Falls Health has invested in is the Genius™ 3D Mammography™ and the SmartCurve™ System by Hologic. The SmartCurve System is a technology that no other healthcare facility in our area has available. Early detection and regular exams are critical. Since the SmartCurve System has a curved compression surface for breast imaging, it provides our patients with a more comfortable mammogram experience without compromising image quality or exam time. Since sometimes fear of pain may prevent a woman from making regular breast imaging a priority, we feel that offering this 3D Mammography™ Exam will reduce pain and make regular breast exams an overall better experience for our patients.
Why Choose a Genuis™ 3D Mammography™ Exam at Granite Falls Health?
