MINNEAPOLIS, May 8, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Race for the Cure will be showcasing a new brand and breast cancer screening technology from Consulting Radiologists, Ltd. (CRL) this weekend!
Women who undergo routine mammograms at CRL Imaging Southdale now have the latest technology available to them: Digital Breast Tomosynthesis, also known as three-dimensional (3D) mammography. This technology has been shown to improve cancer detection and reduce false positives.
Dr. Trudi Parker, board-certified breast imaging radiologist, and Medical Director at CRL Imaging Southdale, stated, "This revolutionary technology reveals greater detail, which can help us detect cancer more accurately. Tomosynthesis gives us the ability to see masses that we might have difficulty detecting with traditional mammography. Because it reduces the overlap of tissue, 3D mammography may lead to fewer callbacks and therefore less anxiety for women."
Scheduled to launch in conjunction with the new technology, CRL Imaging Southdale has rebranded its breast related services to, "CRL Women's Imaging."
"Though Digital Breast Tomosynthesis is offered at imaging centers across the country, CRL Women's Imaging is one of first centers to provide this service in the Twin Cities. As a leader in women's imaging, we decided to create a brand that reflects the true nature of our services at this location," explained Karen Flanagan Kleinhans, Chief of Strategy and Business Development.
"We thought Race for the Cure® would be a great event to launch our new brand. Also, those interested in different options for mammography can stop by our booth and talk to some of our physicians and staff about the new services we are offering," stated Kelsey Erwin, Marketing Coordinator at CRL.
CRL Women's Imaging and CRL Imaging Southdale are co-located at 6525 France Avenue, Suite 110 in Edina. Our breast imaging team includes certified mammography technologists and board-certified radiologists specialized in breast imaging. Their expertise and skill are crucial to the accurate detection and successful treatment of breast cancer.
