Why 3D Mammography is Better

Greater precision, less discomfort.

With its improved imaging, 3D mammography, or digital breast tomosynthesis, helps doctors find small tumors that may not be clearly visible with 2D mammography. Screening with 3D mammography detects up to 40% more invasive cancers, allowing earlier diagnosis and treatment. And when you’re dealing with the second leading cause of death for women in the U.S., early detection is your best defense.

 

With the latest 3D imaging systems, our patients receive the most detailed diagnostics possible with significantly less pain and discomfort. In the hands of our skilled team, we can provide a fast and accurate diagnosis, all in a comfortable, relaxed environment. Talk to your doctor to see if a 3D Mammogram makes sense for you.
