(Tahoe/Truckee, Calif.) – October is National Breast Health Awareness Month, an initiative created to increase awareness of early detection and prevention of breast cancer. If you’ve never had a mammogram, call Tahoe Forest Health System during October for an appointment.
Mammograms and monthly self-checks are the most effective methods for detecting breast cancer early. The earlier breast cancer is found, the better the chances treatment will work. A mammogram is a quick and easy procedure performed by a certified mammography technologist and interpreted by a board-certified radiologist. A doctor’s order is not required for a screening mammogram, and follow-up care is available.
The Briner Imaging Center at Tahoe Forest Hospital offers the Genius® 3D MammographyTM Exams now with Enhanced Detection Technology, the latest breakthrough in breast cancer detection. It is the most accurate technology available, delivering sharper, more detailed images, and higher levels of detection. It is the only exam rated by the FDA as superior for women with dense breast tissue.
To schedule a mammogram, please call the Briner Imaging Center at (530) 582-6510. Most insurance plans are accepted.
Free or reduced-cost screenings may be available. Please call (530) 582-6458 for more information.
