Your breast is three-dimensional. Your Mammogram should be too.
Genius 3D mammography allows doctors to examine your breast tissue layer by layer. So, instead of viewing all the complexities of your breast tissue in a flat image, as with traditional 2D mammography, fine details are more visible and no longer hidden by the tissue above or below.
What to expect during your exam
A 3D mammography exam is very similar to having a traditional 2D mammogram. Like a 2D mammogram, the technologist will position you, compress your breast, and take images from different angles.
There's no additional compression required with 3D mammography, and it only takes a few seconds longer for each view.
The technologist will view the images of your breasts at the computer workstation to ensure quality images have been captured for review. A radiologist will then examine the images and report results to either your physician or directly to you.
Early detection is key
With early detection the five year survival rate is almost 100%.
Detects 41% more invasive breast cancers.
Reduces false positives by up to 40%.
