According to the American Cancer Society, every year more than 200,000 American women are diagnosed with breast cancer. Annual screening for breast cancer has been proven to save women’s lives. Thanks to early detection, there are thousands of women who have beat breast cancer. Until recently, 2-D mammography was the standard method used to detect breast cancer in women. But, mammography isn’t perfect, and many women feel great anxiety at the thought of a mammogram. Mammograms don’t always provide the clearest results, causing many painful, often unneeded, biopsies. That’s changing in a good way.
