  • 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.
