Services Digital Mammography
All exams performed at Pembroke Pink Imaging are digital. The addition of computer aided detection (CAD) in mammography significantly increases the accuracy rate of test results. Annual mammograms can detect cancer early, when it is most treatable. In fact, mammograms show changes in the breast up to two years before a patient or physician can feel them.
Research conducted by the American College of Radiology Imaging Network (ACRIN) has shown that digital mammography is a valuable diagnostic tool for women under age 50, women with dense breasts, and women who have not gone through menopause or who have been in menopause less than one year.
