Baptist Memorial Hospital

Union City, Tenn., September 17, 2018

Baptist Memorial Hospital-Union City (BMH-UC) is now offering a new technology that could improve early detection of breast cancer. Digital breast tomosynthesis, also known as 3-D mammography, allows a radiologist to look for abnormalities in more areas than the 2-D mammography. 3-D mammography is especially beneficial to patients with dense breast tissue, a family history of breast cancer or women who are regularly called back for additional tests.
