United Memorial Medical Center to provide new state-of-the-art mammography services to community.
Beginning on April 21, Rochester Regional Health’s United Memorial Medical Center will offer 3D mammography and additional mammography services at its Jerome Center, 16 Bank Street.
“There is nothing more important than easy access to compassionate service and high-quality care that you can trust,” said Dan Ireland, United Memorial president. “This is yet one more example of how Rochester Regional is creating a model health care system that helps individuals get the care they need and access to the latest diagnostic tools and services close to where they live or work.”
The Jerome Center in Batavia is only blocks away from United Memorial Medical Center where physicians are readily available for follow-up after initial screenings, additional diagnostic procedures or consultations with radiologists, oncologists and surgeons, if necessary.
While women won’t notice any difference in the imaging process when getting their breast screening performed, radiologists will receive more accurate information and can sometimes detect breast cancer earlier from a 3D mammogram. With this advanced technology, radiologists can find up to 41 percent more invasive cancer tissue than the conventional 2D mammography screenings. Since they can visualize the tissue in one-millimeter thick increments slices, they get a clearer view and reading, and have up to 40 percent fewer false positive results. As a result, patients undergoing 3D mammography are less likely to need further screening because of this.
3D mammography services will be available Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. Appointments are available by calling (585)344-5444.
