3D Mammograms

Because you deserve peace of mind.

How does it work?

A 3-dimensional image of your breast provides better images for screening and diagnosis. It’s like seeing the pages inside a book, instead of just the front and back cover. During the exam, the x-ray arm sweeps in a slight arc over your breast, taking multiple images that create a 3-dimensional image of your breast tissue.

What can I expect?

The experience of a 3D mammogram is similar to that of a standard mammogram and can be scheduled at an Imaging Center for Women. There is no additional time or compression required. Very low x-ray energy is used during the exam, about the same amount as a traditional mammogram.

Why 3D?

With conventional mammography, the radiologist is viewing all the complexities of your breast tissue in a flat image. By looking at the breast tissue in one millimeter slices, the radiologist can provide a more confident assessment. They are able to page through these views like a book, identifying issues missed by conventional 2D mammography.

35% Better Cancer Detection

3D tomosynthesis is a major breakthrough in mammography, and we’re excited to offer it at the Imaging Center for Women. Due to the level of detail 3D tomosynthesis provides, it can detect up to 35 percent of cancers sooner. 

Fewer Biopsies and Call-Backs

Since 3D mammograms give a more defined picture, women are less likely to be called back or have a biopsy. This all adds up to greater peace of mind for women.
