WELCOME TO WOMEN’S IMAGING AT RAO
RAO’s Women’s Imaging Center and TimberRidge Imaging Center specialize in breast, bone density and other diagnostic services designed to address the specific needs of women of all ages.
Extensive research by the American Cancer Society proves that regular mammograms substantially reduce breast cancer mortality. RAO is one of the few providers in the nation offering the newest breakthrough in mammogram technology, tomosynthesis or 3D mammography, which is 40% more effective than traditional mammography at discovering invasive cancers and eliminating false positives.
The American Cancer Society and RAO agree that a baseline mammogram should be performed by age 40 to establish a healthy image for easy comparison with subsequent annual exams. It takes just a few minutes and is covered 100% by most insurance providers.
Why by 40? Because if breast cancer is caught and treated while it is still confined to the breast ducts, the cure rate is close to 100%. Considering that breast cancer is the second leading cause of cancer mortality in women, it is proof positive that early, accurate detection is the key to beating breast cancer. Women with high risk factors may want to establish a healthy baseline mammogram even earlier. For your convenience, you can schedule an appointment for a mammogram without a doctor’s referral.
