Health First Diagnostics Takes A Closer Look
When your physician tells you that you need further testing - such as an ultrasound, MRI, CT or mammogram - you want a name you can trust. Health First Diagnostics offers the highest quality care plus state-of-the-art technology. Also, Health First Diagnostics is convenient with easy access to nine locations to accommodate all your diagnostic testing needs. In just one location, you can have laboratory work, radiology procedures and EKGs performed quickly and professionally.
Health First is proud to be the first in Brevard County to offer tomosynthesis technology for breast mammography. This 3D technology is the first and only clinically superior 3D mammography approved by the FDA. It can detect 41% more invasive breast cancers and reduces false positives by up to 40%. This technology also reduces the overall call-back rates from screenings by 30%. Meaning, women at high risk or with dense breast tissue will see better results from their screening mammogram and be less likely to be called back for diagnostic mammogram with ultrasound.
Talk to your referring physician to see if you meet the criteria for 3D mammography.
