When it comes to breast cancer, early detection saves lives. In conjunction with Breast Cancer Awareness Month, Advanced Shore Imaging (ASI) will offer free screening mammograms to women in the community during the month of October. Women who are 35 years or older, uninsured and have no prior breast health diagnosis qualify. In addition, all women who have their mammogram done at ASI during the month of October will be entered into a drawing to win a Spa Gift Bask.
“Worrying about health insurance and finances should not be top of mind when it comes to breast cancer screening. Screening mammograms are vital to early breast cancer detection and successful treatment,” said Tom Yu, Medical Director of ASI. “We want to make sure quality care is available to all members of our community.”
Advanced Shore Imaging, a new imaging center located on Shore Road in Northfield, is a full service facility offering services from x-ray, ultrasound and 3D Tomosynthesis to PET/CT and MRI. ASI has a dedicated women’s center, located on the second level, which offers privacy and comfort for all female patients. ASI also offers the region’s only Automated Breast Volume Screening (ABVS). This zero-radiation breast ultrasound can be performed right after a screening mammogram on patients that are said to have dense breast tissue. This cutting edge technology allows doctors to see through the dense breast tissue leading to early detection of cancers that may have been missed before.
