3-D Mammography

What is a 3-D Mammograph? 

At CHRISTUS Health, patients can receive 3-D mammography screenings which is an effective way to detect breast cancer. These screenings are beneficial for women receiving a baseline screening, women with dense breast tissue, or a history of breast cancer.

Please note 3-D mammography may not be covered by all insurance carriers; please ask about coverage when you call to schedule. 2-D mammography is available if your insurance carrier does not cover 3-D at this time.
