3D mammography is a revolutionary new screening and diagnostic tool designer for early breast cancer detection. With 3D, multiple breast images are produced 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.
With conventional digital mammography, the images of your breast tissue is viewed in one flat image. Whereas 3D mammography allows multiple slices to be reviewed by the radiologist and can more clearly see breast tissue.
3D mammography complements standard 2D mammography and is performed at the same time with the same system. There is no additional compression required and only takes a few more seconds longer for each view.
