The 3D Mammography™ Exam – A New Dimension in Early Detection
Radiology Associates Imaging is proud to offer the 3D Tomosynthesis Mammography™ exam, a breakthrough in early breast cancer detection.
The 3D mammography™ exam allows your doctor and Radiology Associates Imaging Board Certified radiologist to examine your images in 3D versus the traditional two-dimensional scan, delivering more detailed and comprehensive pictures of breast tissue for greater accuracy and far fewer false positive results.
More than 100 clinical studies demonstrate that 3D Mammography™ exams provide 41% better detection of invasive breast cancers and a 40% reduction in false positive readings, increasing the chance of early discovery and reducing unnecessary follow-up exams and the anxiety that goes with them. And, 3D Mammography™ exams find abnormal tissue in women with dense breasts far better than traditional mammography, which can easily overlook small lesions and cancers.
This FDA-approved exam uses very low x-ray energy so radiation exposure remains below FDA guidelines. It requires no different preparation or compression than a traditional mammogram so your experience will be the same as with a traditional mammogram, with more peace of mind.
