State-of-the-art digital mammography machines at the new Sadie Diamond Breast Health Imaging Centre at BC Women’s Hospital and Health Centre are providing BC women with 3D mammograms for the first time. The new imaging technique, called tomosynthesis, generates multiple images from different angles of the breast tissue, allowing for earlier detection and significantly reducing the incidence of false positives.
The Centre provides women with comfortable, private change areas, and features modern exam rooms and a new high-tech image reading room for radiologists.
Women may self-refer to access screening mammography services at the Centre, but a physician referral is needed for diagnostic mammography and other diagnostic services.
