Have You Had Your Mammogram?

Early Detection Saves Lives.

Advanced Breast Imaging Technology, Close to Home

As is the case with all cancers, the earlier breast cancer is detected, the greater the chances of survival are. With 3D mammography, changes in breast tissue can be identified at times even years before they are noticeable by a patient or a provider.

What Is The Benefit Of 3D Mammography?

Until recently, the best mammogram was a digital mammogram. Featuring next generation technology, tomosynthesis 3D imaging acquires a series of images of the compressed breast at different angles. The system produces images that represent thin slices of the breast, allowing radiologists to view slices one millimeter at a time with clarity never before possible.

Now, when combined with conventional 2D digital mammography, breast cancer screening with tomosynthesis has a higher cancer detection rate than conventional 2D digital mammography alone.

Leading-edge 3D mammography technology is particularly beneficial to women with dense breast tissue, which can potentially hide tumors within its fibro-glandular structures. The clarity provided by 3D mammography also decreases the occurrences of false positives, eliminating the anxiety of follow-up mammograms.

Am I a Good Candidate for 3D Mammography?

In addition to improved diagnostic accuracy, tomosynthesis significantly reduces false positive recall rates, thereby avoiding unnecessary additional testing and reducing patient anxiety. Women who can benefit from 3D mammography particularly include:

  • Women with dense breast tissue
  • Women with a history of cancer
  • Women between the ages of 40-60
