A Personal Trainer’s Story.

A Personal Trainer’s Story.

Michelle Mudd, 41, an Edwardsville, Ill. resident, vividly remembers the night she lost all feeling in her legs. It was 2 a.m., and Mudd had been helping her daughter back to bed after using the bathroom. When she returned to bed, her legs gave way, rendering her completely immobile on the bedroom floor.

“Up until then, I had had my share of major back pain, but this time, I was totally numb,” recalled Mudd. “My husband was out of town, so I told my son to call 911 for an ambulance. It was really frightening.”

How a Better Mammogram Saved One Woman’s Anxiety and Another Her Life.

The Breast HealthCare Center started offering 3D for screening mammography last September. Since January 2012, they had used the technology with diagnostic mammography to make sure it really offered benefits. 

3D mammography is a relatively new technology, approved by the FDA in 2011. It takes a series of 15 images in an arc within four seconds. These thin cross-sections allow radiologists to examine breast tissue layer-by-layer.

Clinical trials in the U.S. and Europe have shown that breast cancers often are better seen in 3D because of improved resolution and visualization.
