3D mammography in Myrtle Beach
Grand Strand Health now offers 3D mammography at The Breast Center. This technique captures multiple segments of your breast from different angles, creating a layered 3D image. This is similar to a traditional 2D mammogram but can be more accurate in detecting breast cancer early.
Benefits of 3D mammography include:
- Produces a clearer lesion image
- Reduces the number of unnecessary biopsies, minimizing patient anxiety and unnecessary costs
- Significantly increases early breast cancer detection
We recommend 3D mammography for patients who have:
- Breast cancer or a family history of cancer
- Dense breast tissue
- Previous mammograms with ambiguous or inconclusive results
- Undergone biopsies for suspicious masses or lesions in the past
Anyone can request a 3D mammogram screening. Depending on your insurance coverage, additional fees may apply. You will be informed about any fees that are the patient's responsibility when checking in for your appointment.
Our compassionate team is here to provide the breast screening services you need in a location that is convenient for you. We offer mammograms at three locations in Myrtle Beach:
