Baylor Scott & White Medical Center – Centennial is proud to offer advanced 3-D mammography (breast tomosynthesis) designed for more accurate breast cancer screening than traditional 2-D mammography. 3-D mammography allows the radiologist on the medical staff to examine breast tissue one layer at a time, making fine details more visible because they are no longer hidden by tissue.
Increasing Cancer Detection with Fewer False Alarms
3-D mammography screening has shown an increase in cancer detection and a decrease in false alarms over 2-D mammography, according to a study published in
The Journal of the American Medical Association.
Benefits of 3-D mammograms may include:
- Decrease in false alarms due to abnormalities
- Fine details are more visible and are less likely to be hidden by overlapping tissue
Softer Mammogram Provider
Because we are committed to ensuring that each patient's mammogram is warm and comfortable, we use the MammoPad® breast cushion. This soft foam pad not only decreases overall discomfort, but also is designed to provide a softer, more comfortable mammogram.
Breast Fellowship-Trained Radiologist
3-D mammography is designed to give you more peace of mind, with advanced technology and better screening. All mammogram studies are interpreted by a board-certified and breast fellowship-trained radiologist on the medical staff who specializes in breast imaging.
Schedule Your 3-D Mammogram
Women age 40 and older do not need a physician referral/order to schedule an annual screening mammogram. Check with your insurance on coverage/payment that may be required.
For your convenience, complimentary valet parking is available.
