Carol Milgard Breast Center is going 3D
Feb 21, 2013 – 02:13 PM
The Carol Milgard Breast Center will soon be able to offer its patients 3D mammography services.
The Gary E. Milgard Family Foundation awarded a $2.75 million grant for the Carol Milgard Breast Center to provide tomosynthesis (also known as 3D mammography) to aid in the early detection of breast cancer. The technology will be installed later this year.
“As a center dedicated solely to breast imaging and the early detection of breast cancer, we are thrilled that the Gary E. Milgard Family Foundation’s gift will allow us to become the first in Pierce County to offer patients access to this revolutionary technology,” said Khai Tran, M.D., medical director of the Carol Milgard Breast Center. “Fewer patients will be called back for additional imaging because tomosynthesis allows the radiologist to see the breast tissue much more clearly.”
