3D Mammogram

I was fortunate to be contacted by a PR rep for Pomona Valley Hospital Medical Center and tomorrow I will be heading out there to receive a 3D Mammogram.

From their website:

“At PVHMC, we are committed to bringing state-of-the-art healthcare to our communities. We are furthering that mission with the introduction of our 3D mammography services. 3D mammography is the most accurate breast cancer screening available anywhere and we are proud to offer this lifesaving technology to the women in our care.

  • We are one of the first hospitals in the region to introduce 3D mammography (aka tomosynthesis)

  • We will offer 3D mammography to every woman, every time, and we are the only hospital currently making this technology the standard of care for every mammogram we perform

  • We’ll have 3D mammograms in 3 locations – Pomona, Chino Hills & Claremont

  • No doctor referral is needed

  • Most insurance plans cover 3D mammograms

  • PVHMC offers 3D mammography for just $100 to the uninsured, so there’s no reason to put off this potentially lifesaving exam”

I am very grateful for this opportunity and I can’t wait to tell you all about it.

To follow along I will be live tweeting and face booking.  @Adriennevh , #PVHMC #3DMammo
