3-D Mammography is your best ally in fighting against breast cancer. Significantly increasing the detection of breast cancer and decreasing the number of return visits for additional test, 3-D mammograms are saving lives every day.
3-D mammogram benefits:
- Research indicates 3-D Mammography benefits all screening and diagnostic mammography patients, and is especially valuable for women receiving a baseline screening, those who have dense breast tissue, and/or women with a personal history of breast cancer.
- The only 3-D exam approved by the FDA as clinically superior to traditional mammography and proven to find a significantly higher percentage of the most serious cancers compared to traditional mammograms.
- Proven to significantly find more invasive cancers than a traditional mammogram.
- Reduces false positives by up to 40 percent
- 3-D Mammography has a 41 percent higher invasive breast cancer detection rate than conventional 2-D mammography alone.
- Reduces the number of women called back for unnecessary screenings due to false alarms.
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.
