All-digital 3D mammography allows radiologists to see breast tissue in detail by taking multiple images of the breast from different angles. These images can be viewed separately or put together as a 3D reconstruction of the breast tissue.
With the increased precision, 3D mammography helps detect cancer in its earliest stages, when it’s most treatable, and the amount of unnecessary return visits for repeat breast screenings is reduced Depending on the results of your 3D mammogram, some providers will suggest patients follow up with whole breast ultrasound or breast MRI.
