3D Mammography is the only mammogram that is FDA-approved as superior for women with dense breasts. 3D mammograms allow doctors to examine breast tissue layer by layer, providing better images of each breast.
Radiologists are able to more accurately screen, triage to biopsy, or dismiss a potential false positive — for women across a variety of ages and breast densities.
Why Choose 3D Mammography?
- Greater accuracy of breast cancer compared to 2D alone
- It finds 20-65% more invasive breast cancers than 2D mammography alone
- Reduces unnecessary callbacks by up to 40%
- Recommended for women of all ages, breast densities and a family history of breast cancer
