3-D Mammography – Discover the Benefits
We are proud to provide 3-D mammography for more clarity and greater accuracy. 3-D mammography allows providers to examine breast tissue one layer at a time. This type of screening has shown an increase in cancer detection and a decrease in false alarms.
During the 3-D imaging part of your exam, the X-ray arm sweeps in a slight arc over the breast, taking multiple breast images in just seconds. A computer then produces a 3-D image of your breast tissue in one millimeter layers, giving you a more accurate reading.
According to studies reported by
The Journal of the American Medical Association, 3-D mammography has shown to decrease the number of false-positive results as well as the need for recall testing, both of which alleviate the stress involved in breast cancer screening.
Additional benefits of 3-D mammograms may include:
- An increase in cancer detection rate
- Decrease in false alarms due to abnormalities
- Reduction of additional testing
- Fine details are more visible and are less likely to be hidden by overlapping tissue
- Fewer repeat images may be needed, reducing the exposure to radiation
- Improved breast cancer detection by 27-50 percent over 2-D mammography
