3D Mammography

overview

Digital Breast Tomosynthesis

The medical community has long sought ways to improve the accuracy of breast cancer screenings. A new digital technology, Breast Tomosynthesis, has proven to be an advanced method compared to digital mammography, featuring higher cancer detection rates and fewer patient recalls for additional testing. Why is this important to you? Better sensitivity will likely translate into more lives saved. Lower recall rates result in fewer patients experiencing short-term anxiety awaiting test results, which is important evidence that Tomosynthesis will have a positive impact on patient care for years to come. All seven SDMI imaging centers now offer 3D mammography. SDMI is certified as a Breast Imaging Center of Excellence by the American College of Radiology, so you can have confidence in the standards of our care.

You may feel some discomfort during the compression but our mammography technologist will be there to help make the procedure is as comfortable as possible.

What is better a Mammogram or an Ultrasound?
