Mercy Health Offers Special Screening for Dense Breast Tissue

Exchange: Friends For Life

Women with dense breast tissue now have access to 3D Mammography – a new screening that allows radiologists to see through their tissue much more clearly.  Julie Lundvick utilized that technology,  also known as Tomosynthesis, and it revealed a mass in her breast.  She was quickly referred to the Mercy Health Comprehensive Breast Center for a biopsy.  It turned out to be Stage 1 Breast Cancer.  Now, one year later, Julie shared her story, and the technology that very likely saved her life.  As the only centers of their kind in West Michigan, Mercy Health Comprehensive Breast Centers deliver prompt, personal, specialized care for all aspects of breast health. They focus on total breast health — from screening mammograms and lifetime risk analysis to, if necessary, the latest treatments.
