“With 3D Mammography, better detection gives me peace of mind.”

Linda Howard was absolutely thrilled about her recent mammogram appointment at Canyon Vista Medical Center’s Carter Imaging Center. “The whole visit—from the moment I walked in to when I left—was no more than 10 minutes!” Linda said. “Graciela Villanueva, 3D mammography technologist, was so friendly and knew exactly what she was doing. I’m small, less than five feet. In the past, I had to stand on a box for my mammogram. This time, the machine adjusted to fit me. The time it took to have the 3D mammogram seemed almost instantaneous. All in all, it was a magnificent visit.”

Linda was also amazed at how fast she received her results. “I had the mammogram on Thursday,” she said. “The next Monday morning, my physician called to let me know everything looked normal. This technology saves lives. With quick results, you feel at ease and have peace of mind,” Linda said. “I really believe we have a responsibility to tell our daughters, mothers, sisters and female friends about this great service at the Carter Imaging Center.”

As a Pink Ribbon Facility, our Carter Imaging Center provides every patient with a 3D mammography exam which is interpreted by board certified and breast fellowship-trained radiologists. This breakthrough technology gives us a whole new way of detecting breast cancer.
