3D mammography is performed at the same time as a standard 2D mammogram and takes only seconds longer. 3D mammograms reduce the need for follow-up breast exams and the radiation exposure is about the same as a traditional mammogram.
“This innovative new technology allows us to see breast tissue detail in a way never before possible. It allows us to find breast cancer at its earliest stages, when it is most treatable.” – Dan Ellsworth, Director of Lourdes Diagnostic Services
With 3D mammography, doctors are able to see masses and distortions associated with cancers and precancerous cells significantly more clearly than conventional 2D mammography. Instead of viewing all of the complexities of your breast tissue in a flat image, as with traditional 2D, fine details are more visible and no longer hidden by the tissue above or below.
