Don’t wait until Breast Cancer Awareness Month in October to prioritize your breast health.
Preventative screening is our best tool in the fight against breast cancer, a disease that affects one in eight women. I was thrilled to know that modern day breast screening technology like the Hologic Genius 3D Mammography exam can deliver a much more comprehensive breast image allowing the doctor to achieve more accurate breast cancer detection, compared to traditional 2D mammography.

Now with the Hologic SmartCurve breast stabilization system which utilizes a curved compression surface, the comfort level has increased tremendously.[ii] I tried it last week and was amazed at how much more pleasant the experience was for me.

 

 

North Valley Hospital, Whitefish, MT

I scheduled my annual mammogram right away by using the zip code locator and was thrilled that there was a hospital providing this technology directly in my back yard; the North Valley Hospital in Whitefish, MT was listed as a provider of the Genius exam and the SmartCurve system, and my procrastination was finally over! 

 

I tested it for all of us and can tell you without a doubt that the comfort level was incredible. I did a little video while I was there so you can see it firsthand. Honestly, I am glad I took the time to put my health first and get my Genius exam, and I encourage You to stop putting it off too! 
Pass the locator link, www.Genius3DNearMe.com, and info to all the ladies you know. They will thank you for it!
