3D Mammography

Mammograms can either be used for screening or for diagnostic purposes

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 why Breast Tomosynthesis will have a positive impact on patient care for years to come. All SDMI imaging centers offer Breast Tomosynthesis/3D mammography. SDMI is certified as a Breast Imaging Center of Excellence by the American College of Radiology.
