3D Mammography

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%.
