    Digital Tomosynthesis: Innovation Digital 3D Technology

    Thank you! Because of your generosity, we have completed the fundraising to bring 3D high-resolution imaging technologies to all of our mammography suites. In just the first few months after bringing the machines online, the number of women called back for additional testing has declined dramatically and six new cancer cases have been detected that would not have been caught with the older technology.



    Breast cancer is the most common cancer among women in San Mateo County. The county was identified as a new area of concern in a recent Public Health Institute study, with invasive breast cancer rates 10 to 20 percent higher than the statewide rate. The Mills-Peninsula Women’s Center is dedicated to providing high-quality breast health services to the community by securing the most advanced digital technologies.
