Radiologists at the Veranda in Albany have analyzed thousands of images since they began using a new 3-D image machine a few months ago.

They say it's quick and more comfortable for the patient.    The new technology is covered by insurance at no extra cost.

"A lot of patients have come in and they have recommended friends," said Ima Walker Radiology Director. "They've told people its really easy, just go in and try it, you know because they are really good, they are professional and they know what they are doing, and it doesn't take that long."

"Don't be scared to get a mammogram, don't be scared of testing, it's extremely safe, radiation is not an issue," said Dr. John Inman of the Veranda Medical Center.

The 3-D technology is said to be 41% more accurate than regular mammograms.
