What Exactly is a Mammography Screening?
LSG Imaging understands that a breast cancer screening can provoke anxiety. We make every attempt to offer a calm and comfortable environment, and cater to patients’ needs to make the procedure as easy as possible.
Our practice is also well equipped to image patients with prior surgery and/or breast implants.
What is 3D mammography?
3D mammography, also known as tomosynthesis, is a wide-angle technology offering a much more comprehensive view, enabling our expert team to detect even very small, early cancers. We, at LSG Imaging, believe it provides the greatest accuracy when compared to other 3D and 2D mammography services to date. Our practice was the very first California diagnostic radiology group (and one of the first 10 in the United States) to offer this advanced technology, through a partnership with Siemens.
The MAMMOMAT Revelation system from Siemens is designed to offer personalized soft compression, making it much more comfortable for our patients, as well as increased diagnostic accuracy.

What Should I Expect?
After this mammography screening, a physical breast examination will be performed; the patient will have the opportunity to ask any questions or raise any of their concerns to the radiologist.
Should any breast abnormalities be found, the radiologist may then deem it necessary to perform a breast ultrasound. If an abnormality is deemed to require a biopsy, generally, an ultrasound-guided biopsy can be performed at the time of this visit.

Why is Scheduling a Mammogram Important?
For those over 40 or with high breast density, scheduling a mammogram is one of the best ways to detect the early signs of breast cancer. In fact, a recent study found that mammography screenings can reduce the mortality from breast cancer by 41%.
Last year, actress Jennifer Garner stressed the importance of annual visits by posting a video of her visit to LSG Imaging.
