CHAMBERLAIN, S.D. — Sanford Chamberlain has added new 3D mammogram capabilities, leading to earlier detection of breast cancer. This breakthrough FDA-approved technology captures multiple high-quality images at different angles, providing clearer pictures for radiologists. The technology also allows patients to receive advanced breast cancer screening close to home, instead of traveling several miles to the nearest facility with 3D mammogram technology.
The low-dose 3D mammogram allows physicians to detect breast cancer at its smallest and most treatable stage, pinpointing the shape, size and location of irregularities with greater accuracy.
“3D Mammograms allow for earlier detection, fewer tests and reduced anxiety for patients,” said Erica Petersen, senior director of Sanford Chamberlain. “Bringing this technology to Chamberlain ensures all women will receive the latest in preventative care close to home.”
Funding for the new 3D mammogram technology was made possible by local donations, including the Holiday Extravaganza and Stanley-Jones Trust, as well as the Sanford Health Foundation, which inspires philanthropy to power Sanford Health’s work of health, healing, and comfort. 100% of every dollar raised by the Sanford Heath Foundation helps deliver compassionate patient-centered care and drive medical research and collaboration to accelerate bold solutions for a brighter tomorrow.

“We appreciate all donors who gave to the Edith initiative through the Sanford Health Foundation,” said Erin Sanderson, executive director of the Sanford Health Foundation in Sioux Falls. “Without their unwavering support, expanding rural access to the latest technologies would not be possible.”
