A 15-minute procedure, once a year, that could save your life.

35% better cancer detection with a 3D mammogram.

3D mammograms provide a 35% better cancer detection rate over traditional mammograms. Because they provide a more complete picture, women are less likely to be called back or need a biopsy—that means more time for "me time".

Why is it important to get a mammogram every year?

When it comes to detecting and treating cancer, there's nothing more important than early detection. Survival rate is dependent on the size of the cancer, which can grow quickly, so every year counts.

Who should get a mammogram?

Women with average risk should begin annual mammograms at age 40. If you have a family history of breast cancer, you should begin earlier. Talk to your doctor about when you should begin annual mammograms. 

Remember, 50% of breast cancer occurs in someone with no family history of breast cancer.


How does it work?

A three-dimensional image of your breast provides better images for screening and diagnosis. It’s like seeing the pages inside a book, instead of just the front and back cover. During the exam, the x-ray arm sweeps in a slight arc over your breast, taking multiple images that create a three-dimensional image of your breast tissue.

What can I expect?

The experience of a 3D mammogram is similar to that of a standard mammogram and can be scheduled at an Imaging Center for Women. There is no additional time or compression required. Very low x-ray energy is used during the exam, which is about the same amount as a traditional mammogram.

Why 3D?

With conventional mammography, the Radiologist is viewing all the complexities of your breast tissue in a flat image. By looking at the breast tissue in one millimeter slices, the Radiologist can provide a more confident assessment. They are able to page through these views like a book, identifying issues missed by conventional 2D mammography.
