The Oak Ridge Breast Center now offers 3D mammography or digital breast tomosynthesis, the newest advancement in breast screening technology. It allows radiologists to see around and between breast tissues with greater clarity than ever before, a press release said. These more defined images may help detect cancer earlier and the x-ray exposure and screening procedure is performed like a traditional 2D mammogram.
Learn more about 3D mammography with Dr. Thomas Lemond, a board-certified radiologist and medical director of the Oak Ridge Breast Center, during Health Night on the Town on Tuesday, October 25, at 7 p.m. in the Ridge Conference Room of Methodist Medical Center, 990 Oak Ridge Turnpike.
The program is free and open to the public.
Lemond earned his medical degree from the University of Tennessee in Memphis. He completed a transitional internship at Methodist University in Memphis and a diagnostic radiology residency at the University of Tennessee Health Science Center/Methodist Healthcare in Memphis, and a breast imaging fellowship at Methodist Breast Center in Memphis. Lemond is board-certified in radiology. He is a member of the American Board of Radiology and the Radiological Society of North America. Lemond is in practice with the Oak Ridge Breast Center and Radiology Imaging Associates of Oak Ridge, the press release said.
