Detecting cancer early makes all the difference
Women diagnosed with breast cancer at stage 1 have nearly a 100% five-year
survival rate, according to the American Cancer Society. However, women
with stage 4 cancers have only a 22% chance of living another five years.
Finding breast cancer sooner translates to significantly higher odds of survival.

Breast cancer screening has improved significantly over the past few years
with advances in 3D technology in mammography, or digital breast tomosynthesis
(DBT), which offers better image quality and data than ever before. Garden
City Hospital is the
only hospital in Wayne County, Michigan to offer ProFound AI for DBT - the
first and only 3D tomosynthesis software using artificial intelligence
(AI). Benefits of 3D mammography include:
- Produces hundreds of images rather than the typical four images with 2D
technology to provide doctors with more information and better images.
- Helps doctors detect cancers earlier with unrivaled accuracy and helps
better identify suspicious areas.
- Less false positives and unnecessary recalls.
- Personalized compression for a more comfortable exam.
- Reduces steps during your exam.

Do you know what your risk for Breast cancer is?
Garden City Hospital also offers other breast care services beyond the
yearly mammogram. We offer the area’s most advanced total breast
care including a full risk assessment for every patient. GCH breast care includes:
- Full Field Digital Mammography
- Ultrasound Services including Biopsy
- Stereotactic Biopsy
GCH breast care offers ultrasound evaluation. A breast ultrasound examination
is an investigative technology used for taking a closer look at areas
of your breast that your doctor still has questions about after doing
a mammogram and clinical breast exam. An ultrasound test may be useful
if you have dense breast tissue, your mammogram shows an indistinct mass,
or if a lump can be easily felt during a clinical breast exam.
