3D Mammography Creates the Most Accurate, Detailed Images Says the Center for Diagnostic Imaging

3D Mammography has made breast imaging much more effective, says The Center for Diagnostic Imaging. 3D mammograms offer unprecedented details that older, legacy versions of imaging technology could not visualize. 

Women 40 years old and older should begin annual mammograms to help detect breast cancer. However, not many health care providers offer 3D mammography.

​What is 3D Mammography?

3D mammography is an FDA-approved imaging technology that takes multiple images of breast tissue and recreates a 3-dimensional picture of the breast. Traditional mammography only creates a single image.

​Benefits of 3D Mammography

​For women that need breast screening, a 3D mammography is a great option, (particularly for women who have dense breast tissue). Using 3D mammography can make it easier for physicians to spot breast cancer early. Additionally, 3D mammography reduces the chances of doctors seeing a false positive (because it can more accurately depict cancer size). 

​What are the risks associated with having a 3D mammogram?

A 3D mammogram has no more risk than a traditional mammogram. A patient is exposed to the same levels of radiation. 

​What can patients expect during a 3D mammogram?

​For the most part, there are no large differences between 3D and regular mammograms.
