Smithfield, NC, July 30, 2014 --(PR.com
)-- Wake Radiology announced that it has opened a new outpatient imaging office in Smithfield that offers screening mammograms.
Wake Radiology, a leader in mammography and medical imaging, has deep ties to Smithfield. It served the Smithfield community for 25 years while running the radiology department at Johnston Memorial Hospital until 2010.
“Wake Radiology has a long history in Smithfield and we’re excited to continue serving this community,” said Dr. Lyndon K. Jordan III, Wake Radiology’s president and managing partner and a Smithfield native. “We know that the best protection against breast cancer is early detection, and we want to make it as convenient as possible for women to have a mammogram.”
The office, located behind the Carolina Premium Outlets at 218 Venture Drive, will be open Monday through Friday from 8:00 am to 4:30 pm.
One in eight women in the United States will develop invasive breast cancer and mammograms are considered the best way to detect breast cancer early when it is most treatable. The American Cancer Society recommends annual mammograms for women starting at age 40.
A mammography appointment only lasts 30 minutes from check-in to exam completion. To schedule a screening mammogram at Wake Radiology’s Smithfield office, call (919) 232-4700 or visit www.wakerad.com.
