The Breast Center—First in region to offer 3D mammography

May 12th, 2013

The Breast Center is the first in the region to offer patients a breakthrough technology that revolutionizes how breast cancer is detected today— 3D mammography (or digital breast tomosynthesis).

3D mammography offers the Radiologist improved overall breast cancer detection by 27% as well as a 40% increase in the detection of invasive breast cancers. 3D mammography also has demonstrated a 15% decrease in false positive rates, especially in women with dense breast tissue thus giving patients more peace of mind and reduced anxiety.

While not every woman needs to have 3D mammography, it has been found to be effective in women with dense breast tissue— which can be more difficult to image with conventional digital mammography.

Tomosynthesis provides a 3D mammogram that, when used in conjunction with standard digital mammography, enables radiologists to view breast tissue in a way never before possible!
