New Breast Cancer Detection Technology at St. Luke’s

St. Luke's unveiled its new 3d mammogram

DULUTH, Minn. – St. Luke’s unveiled new technology to help better detect breast cancer.

The St. Luke’s Breast Center cut the ribbon for their brand new 3D mammogram machines on Thursday. Previously doctors only had 2 images to look at, now they can see 15 different images.

Radiologists can now detect even smaller signs of breast cancer.

“We know that cancers that are detected by mammograms versus cancers that are detected by feeling them, have a much better and improved survival and overall easier course of treatment (for the patient),” said radiologist, Dr. Kerri Harting.

Experts at St. Luke’s say that all women should begin yearly breast cancer screenings at the age of 40.
