​​​​3D Mammography

Hologic GeniusTM 3D MammographyTM provides detailed, layer-by-layer images of breast tissue, allowing for better detection ​of breast cancer in women with dense breast tissue. ​

Fo​r these women, a more accurate diagnosis could open the door to earlier treatment options.

Three-dimensional mammography takes multiple images of breast tissue from many different angles with the X-ray equipment moving in an arc across the breast. These images are then digitally synthesized to create three-dimensional images. Adding this third dimension gives radiologists the opportunity to see cancers that hide behind dense breast tissue and to give them a better view of all breast tissue.

This technology also reduces the frequency of false-positives, which reduces the number of patients who are asked to return for a second mammogram to give additional views of their breast tissue.

Also known as Digital Breast Tomosynthesis, GeniusTM 3D MammographyTM is FDA approved, delivering a low dose of radiation comparable to a conventional mammogram. ​
