Main Line Health is pleased to announce that 3D
Mammography, also known as digital breast tomosynthesis, will be
available this summer at no additional cost to our patients. Digital
breast tomosynthesis is the latest breakthrough in mammography and is
recommended for all women. Specifically, it is most effective for women
between the ages 40–50 and who have a personal history of breast cancer.
Successful treatment of breast cancer begins with early detection. While
monthly physical self-examinations are at the core of breast health,
mammography can show changes in the breast up to two years before a
woman or physician can feel these changes. The Holloway Breast Health
Center at Paoli Hospital offers the latest technology and expertise in

The Latest Technology
Our R2 ImageChecker System is a computer-aided detection system that
uses advanced software to analyze a mammogram and highlight suspicious
areas for the radiologist to review more closely. Use of this system can
aid in earlier detection of cancer, which is key to a better outcome.
Ultrasound uses high-frequency sound waves to create an image of breast
tissue. Ultrasound can often reveal whether a lump is filled with fluid
or is solid. High-resolution ultrasound provides superior detail for a
more accurate and complete analysis of breast abnormalities.
Dual-energy X-ray absorptiometry (DEXA) scanning, also known as bone
density scanning or bone densitometry, is a simple, painless procedure
that measures bone density, an accurate predictor for osteoporosis.
Since many women with a higher risk of breast cancer should not use
estrogen therapies for the treatment of osteoporosis, determining a risk
for bone weakness is important.
Timely Results and Consultations
The hallmark of our center is our commitment to providing accurate and
timely information to help women make informed decisions. If a lump is
felt or if mammography results require further evaluation, we offer
quick consultations and easy access to specialists to lessen waiting
time and reduce worrying. Our board-certified breast surgeons are
available for consultation within 24 to 48 hours. We also offer
consultation with a plastic and reconstructive surgeon.
The Holloway Breast Health Center has been designated a Breast Imaging
Center of Excellence by the American College of Radiology.
