Treating Breast Cancer In Three Dimensions


The dream in breast cancer treatment is a simple one: that one day women will be able to take a pill, and the cancer will disappear.

Until that day, the key to treatment is early detection.  And Providence Medford Medical Center's Leila J. Eisenstein Breast Center is installing state-of-the-art devices for just that purpose. 

3-D imaging machines will help doctors find smaller lumps in breast tissue, allowing earlier diagnosis.
