Are you at risk for lung cancer?
A low-dose CT lung screening will show the lung tissue in high diagnostic detail to help you understand your risk for lung cancer. USPSTF guidelines and Medicare eligibility criteria recommend annual lung screenings for individuals ages 55 to 77 with a tobacco smoking history of at least 30 pack years. You must meet with your physician to discuss eligibility, and the physician must order the CT lung scan.
Advanced imaging technology
Community continuously invests in the latest radiology and imaging technology to provide you and your physician with the highest level of diagnostic information possible, from MRI and CT scanners to mammography systems and more.
3D mammography is a revolutionary new screening and diagnostic tool designer for early breast cancer detection. With 3D, multiple breast images are produced in one millimeter slices, providing greater visibility for the radiologist to see breast detail in a way never before possible. They can scroll through images of your entire breast like pages of a book.
With conventional digital mammography, the images of your breast tissue is viewed in one flat image. Whereas 3D mammography allows multiple slices to be reviewed by the radiologist and can more clearly see breast tissue.
3D mammography complements standard 2D mammography and is performed at the same time with the same system. There is no additional compression required and only takes a few more seconds longer for each view.
