The Knox Club is proud to announce that we will be holding our annual Fundraising Golf Day on Sunday 25th March 2018. Our aim is to help raise funds for the purchase of an additional 3D mammography machine for Maroondah Hospital’s new Breast and Cancer Centre.
Eastern Health are currently conducting research on the accuracy of 3D screening and an additional machine would increase the number of participants in this study to 15,000. Early research suggests that 3D mammography can detect up to 40% more cancers, however 3D screening is not currently covered by Medicare. The results of this research could determine changing standard breast screening practice from 2D to 3D and could enable Eastern Health & other public health providers the ability to offer 3D screening to all women free of charge.
