3D Mammography

Mammograms are the most important tool your healthcare provider uses to screen for breast cancer. A 3D mammogram creates a three-dimensional picture of the breasts for a clearer look at all breast types and levels of breast density. 3D mammography is also more comfortable for patients, provides more thorough images, and the results are more reliable than a traditional mammogram. Even more advantageous, 3D mammograms detect cancers up to 65% faster than standard mammograms.
