- Mammography at St. John River District Hospital: East China Listing
St. John River District Hospital (SJRDH)offers digital mammography, which provides three-dimensional imagery, giving physicians the opportunity to analyze suspicious growths from multiple angles, increasing the ability to detect breast cancer. This gives patients the key to fighting breast cancer: early detection. The National Cancer Institute has found that digital mammography significantly improves early breast cancer detection among women who are difficult to diagnose and detect: those under age 50, women with high-density breast tissue, and pre-menopausal women. Approximately 10 percent of American women will be diagnosed with breast cancer; an estimated 20 percent of these women will die from the disease.
Mammography services are accredited through the American College of Radiology, Food and Drug Administration and Michigan Quality Standards Act
