At Women First, you have access to the latest, most accurate mammography technology on the market today. Our 3D Tomosynthesis Mammography equipment is the first and only technology of its kind approved by the FDA, and has been proven to detect more types of breast cancer earlier and more accurately than traditional mammography.
This advanced 3D imaging technology, the Selenia® Dimensions® 3D Mammography™ from Hologic, allows the radiologist to see masses and distortions associated with cancers and precancerous cells more clearly than conventional mammography, regardless of breast type or density. 3D technology allows radiologists to examine your breast tissue layer by layer. Fine details are more visible within the 3D images and are less obscured by tissue above or below.
The procedure for a 3D tomosynthesis mammography exam is almost identical to a traditional 2D mammogram—the technologist will position you, compress your breast, and take images from different angles.
We strongly recommend 3D TOMO mammography to our patients with a family history of breast cancer and to those who have dense breasts or who have had breast augmentation, as well as other patients at more than average risk for breast cancer.
