Seeing more in 3D

May 05, 2015

Early detection is the key to breast cancer survivorship. A screening mammogram is a low-dose X-ray used to evaluate a woman’s breast health. It helps doctors see whether there are any abnormalities or changes in the breast tissue that may need treatment. With this in mind, we are offering 3D mammography screenings in addition to 2D screenings.

What is a 3D mammography screening?
It’s an X-ray that takes multiple images of your breast tissue. The images are then converted to a 3D image that allows the radiologist to see the tissue in greater detail. Read more about Seeing more in 3D

Are you crazy busy?

It seems like all of the successful people in our society are, what I like to call, “crazy busy”! We value adults who seem to be in constant motion all of the time. If you call them, they can’t call you back right away because---they’re busy! If you want to get together with them, they’re not available—because they’re too busy! At work, if you stop them in the hall to chat for a few moments---they can’t, because you guessed it, they’re too darn busy! Let’s face it—we are all too busy for our own good!

Do I express my feelings, or keep them to myself?

Recently, my oldest daughter shared a challenging experience. She is attending a program to learn a particular form of body therapy—called structural integration. During the classes, a couple of the students were rude. At times, their behavior was distracting and even disruptive. During the two month seminar, she debated within herself whether to confront these students. On the one hand, she didn’t want to have an argument with them. But on the other hand, she was annoyed and irritated by their behavior. On the last day of the workshop, she finally did convey her feelings.

Look around you. Everyone is hunched over, walking down the street, texting on his or her smart phone. Families sit at restaurant tables, with every family member’s cell phone at the ready.

Joe has been increasing his alcohol use for several years, and now he’s drinking an entire bottle of wine or more, four to five nights a week. He doesn’t think he’s impaired; after all he’s built up a high tolerance. But his family is angry and embarrassed. Joe doesn’t drink at work, so he doesn’t think he has a problem. “So what if I like to have a couple of glasses of wine at the end of the week or on Saturday night”. He’s not like his uncle and his mother who drank heavily during the day and died from liver failure.  But his family has an entirely different story about his alcohol use.
