BEL AIR, Md., Nov. 10, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Ella Health, an innovative women's wellness provider, has joined with Progressive Radiology to provide women in the Bel Air area with the most advanced breast cancer detection technology available. The new center will offer 3D mammography in a beautiful spa-like setting with friendly, welcoming staff.
3D mammography has been shown to increase the detection of invasive breast cancer by 41 percent while reducing unnecessary call backs for additional testing. The system works by taking multiple images during the exam, which are then compiled into a reconstruction of the breast providing an enhanced view. At the new center, 3D mammography is available for both screening and diagnostic exams. The images are read by board-certified, fellowship-trained radiologists who specialize in women's imaging.
In addition to offering the latest technology, Ella Health provides a convenient and comfortable experience. Appointments can be made online and with short notice, sometimes on the same day. The center features a relaxing atmosphere with warm cloth robes, private dressing rooms, along with aromatherapy, soft music and tea and coffee in the waiting room. Results are delivered quickly, generally within one business day of the exam.
"This is a place where women can relax and feel pampered," said Ella Health Chief Executive Joe Shikorsky. "They can get an exam that provides greater cancer detection at a center where the staff specializes in making them feel welcome and comfortable throughout their appointment. Our goal is to make it easier for women to get a mammogram so they will take this important step to protect their health."
"We are glad to add 3D mammography to the list of services that we can provide to our patients," said Progressive Medical Director Jill Wilkens, M.D. "This is the most important recent advance in mammography and will save lives while reducing the anxiety around having unnecessary testing."
