Davis County Hospital offers a 3-D Mammography exam option that could improve early detection of breast cancer. Designed from the ground up with the input from women, the GE Senographe Pristina 3-D Technology, is the first mammography system to provide women with the “three Cs”: comfort, confidence, and clarity. Utilizing advanced breast tomosynthesis technology (also known as 3-D Mammography), these exams are clinically proven to significantly increase the detection of breast cancers, while also decreasing the number of women asked to return for additional testing (compared to 2-D mammography). Not only does this system offer patients a greater peace of mind, it delivers the superior diagnostic accuracy at the same low dose as a 2-D mammography exam, the lowest patient dose of all FDA-approved 3-D mammography systems.
If you’re interested in a 3-D Mammography exam at Davis County Hospital, please contact your primary care provider as well as your insurance to verify coverage of 3-D exam services. 3-D Mammography exams are offered at Davis County Hospital five days a week.

CT Lung Cancer Screening
Davis County Hospital offers CT Lung Cancer Screenings. Early detection of lung cancer through CT screening of people at high risk of lung cancer, has been shown to decrease lung cancer deaths by 20 percent. If caught early, lung cancer can be curable. Lung cancer is the most common type of cancer in American men and women. It is also the leading cause of cancer deaths in the U.S. and the world. More people in America die from lung cancer alone than prostate, breast and colon cancers combined Most cases are linked to tobacco smoking.

• Have a smoking history of at least 30 pack-years (for example, 1 pack a day for 30 years, 2 packs a day for 15 years, etc.)
