Mammogram Review

More than 90 percent of breast cancer cases can be detected through mammography, and one of the most thorough screening processes available is a Triple Mammogram Review from Woman’s Hospital.

Woman’s is the only hospital in the Baton Rouge region to offer state-of-the-art Triple Mammogram Review. Our mammograms are reviewed by two board-certified radiologists and our state-of-the-art Computer-Aided Detection (CAD) System at no extra cost to you. These extra steps enable us to find breast cancer in its earliest stages, when it’s most curable.

In our more than 40,000 mammograms performed in 2012, 16 additional cases of breast cancer were identified as a result of our triple read.

Computer-Aided Detection (CAD)

Although a mammogram is an excellent way to find most breast cancers when they are small and most curable, it does not detect all breast cancers. As a result, Woman’s has adopted the latest technology to make mammograms as accurate as possible.

Computer-Aided Detection and Diagnosis (CAD) was developed to help radiologists find suspicious changes on mammograms.

Computers can help doctors find abnormal areas on a mammogram by acting as a third set of eyes for Woman’s patients. With a digital mammogram, the computer displays the picture on a video screen, with markers pointing to areas the radiologist should check more closely.

Woman’s uses its Computer-Aided Detection technique on each of the more than 40,000 mammograms performed every year.
