Protect Yourself from Breast Cancer

On average, 75 women are diagnosed with breast cancer every day. This disease is responsible for 13% of all cancer-related deaths across the country, but you can help protect your health by having regular breast exams.

With our leading-edge digital breast tomosynthesis imaging technology, we can pinpoint some of the slightest signs of breast cancer before you start to experience symptoms. Get help you can depend on and book your digital breast tomosynthesis appointment with our team at PDI today.

What is Digital Breast Tomosynthesis?

Breast exams should be a part of every person’s regular health check-ups as breast cancer can affect both men and women. Peace Diagnostic Imaging helps detect and diagnose the existence of breast cancer with the help of our tomosynthesis imaging technology.

As the first diagnostic imaging facility in Canada to use Quorum tomosynthesis technology, our team can detect the slightest signs of breast cancer with fully-3D x-ray images that your doctor can use to create a treatment plan matched to your needs.

Preparing for Your Appointment

Before you come for your appointment, please ensure you:

  • Wear comfortable 2-piece clothing. You will need to remove your top to get the clearest images for your doctor
  • Do not wear any deodorant, creams, ointments, or lotions from the waist up. Also, please refrain from wearing perfume as we endeavour to have a scent-free department, due to allergies
  • Let our technologists know about any breast implants, surgeries, or any family history you may have with breast cancer
  • Let our team know if you are pregnant or are currently breastfeeding. We will book a screening mammogram when you are not pregnant or nursing

Please note that if you have received a COVID vaccine, you should wait at least 4 weeks before booking an appointment.

You may wish to book your appointment a week after your menstrual cycle finishes to help minimize tenderness and keep the exam as comfortable as possible.

Digital Breast Tomosynthesis uses a small amount of radiation to generate its images, but this is safe and will not cause any side-effects.

When you come for your exam, our technologists will gently and respectfully perform the digital breast tomosynthesis procedure.  A series of images will be taken of the right and left breasts.

At the end of your exam, the images will be compiled by our computer and a report will be sent to your doctor within 1 business day. You may get your results earlier if the information is urgent.
