Northern Radiology Associates promotes early detection of breast cancer with latest install of ASPIRE Cristalle with digital breast tomosynthesis (DBT)
At Northern Radiology Associates in Watertown, NY, boosting breast cancer screening rates begins with a mammography system that is designed to screen for breast cancer regardless of breast density with sharper images (than 2D alone) and greater visibility of patient images.

Dean Phillips, DO, radiologist at Northern Radiology Associates in Watertown, NY.
*ACC accounts for less than 1 out of every 500 new cases of cancer diagnosed each year. http://www.accoi.org/faq/acc-statistics
