Advanced 3-D mammography

Baylor Scott & White Breast Center – Rockwall 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.

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

Frequently asked questions about mammograms

3-D mammography is a revolutionary new screening and diagnostic tool designed for early breast cancer detection that can be done in conjunction with a traditional 2-D digital mammogram.

During the 3-D part of the breast exam, the X-ray arm sweeps in a slight arc over your breast, taking multiple breast images. Then, a computer produces a 3-D image of your breast tissue in one-millimeter slices, providing greater visibility for the radiologist to see breast detail in a way never before possible. They can scroll through images of your entire breast like pages of a book.

The additional 3-D images make it possible for a radiologist to gain a better understanding of your breast tissue during screening and the confidence to reduce the need for follow-up imaging.

With conventional digital mammography, the radiologist is viewing all the complexities of your breast tissue in a one flat image. Sometimes breast tissue can overlap, giving the illusion of normal breast tissue looking like an abnormal area.

By looking at the breast tissue in one-millimeter slices, the radiologist can provide a more confident assessment. In this way, 3-D mammography finds cancers missed with conventional 2-D mammography. It also means there is less chance your doctor will call you back later for a "second look," because now they can see breast tissue more clearly.

A screening mammogram is your annual mammogram that is done every year. Sometimes the radiologist may ask you to come back for follow-up images, which is called a diagnostic mammogram, to rule out an unclear area in the breast or if there is a breast complaint that needs to be evaluated.

3-D mammography complements standard 2-D mammography and is performed at the same time with the same system. There is no additional compression required, and it only takes a few more seconds longer for each view.

Very low X-ray energy is used during the breast exam—just about the same amount as a traditional mammogram done on film.

It is approved for all women who would be undergoing a standard mammogram, in both the screening and diagnostic settings.
