3D Mammography

3D MammogramMammograms are the best screening method available for detecting breast cancer. 3D Mammography, or breast tomosynthesis, is the best imaging technology for screening women with dense breasts or who are at high risk. Breast tomosynthesis is also beneficial to every woman as it can detect cancer more accurately at an earlier stage.

Call 1-866-GUTHRIE (866-488-4743) to schedule a screening at any Guthrie location.

How 3D Mammography works

A 3D mammogram is similar to the 2D mammogram experience. The breast is compressed under a paddle as images are acquired. Unlike 2D mammography, which takes images in two views, 3D mammography takes multiple images from many angles. This allows the doctor to view thin slices of the breast tissue to get a clearer and more comprehensive view.

Potential Advantages:

  • Fewer call-backs for additional screening and testing.
  • Improved cancer detection showing deeper breast structure more clearly.
  • Decreased false positives as individual layers of tissue are visualized separately.
  • Improved imaging for dense breasts.
