A local hospital offers a reduced price on 3D mammograms to spread awareness for one of the most deadly types of cancer. Northeast Regional Medical Center Mediplex in Oxford now offers the lowest dose 3D mammogram in Northeast Alabama. The exam costs $99 for each patient. The 3D mammography finds 40% more invasive cancers than a 2D exam alone. RMC Foundation Director Lagina Fillingim says early detection saves hundreds of lives each year.
If you would like to make an appointment you can go online to the RMC website or give them a call. On October 27th, RMC Mediplex will host a Brake for Breakfast where people are welcome to come and learn about Breast Cancer prevention, and enjoy free breakfast and a pink t-shirt.
