Mayanei Hayeshua Medical Center’s new and technologically advanced Mammography Clinic provides life-saving services to women throughout Israel.
Breast cancer is the most common form of cancer in women. However, early detection of breast cancer increases the likelihood of cure to about 90%. A Mammography and clinical breast examination by a doctor are the most widespread methods for early detection of breast cancer. When tumors are detected in the early stages (smaller than 10 mm) the chances of a complete cure are more than 90%.
Studies show that mammography screening reduces mortality from breast cancer, especially in women between the ages of 50 and 69.
MHMC recently purchased a sophisticated mammography machine to enable the early detection of breast pathology. Using state-of-the-art digital and computer technology, this machine yields better and faster image analysis and is safer for patients due to a lower radiation dose.
This new equipment reassures our patients that they are receiving a sophisticated, top levelexamination after which our specially trained and skilled doctors are able to provide accurate diagnoses.
