3D mammography: our standard of care

Our Breast Center offers 3D mammography using Hologic Genius 3D Breast Tomosynthesis technology. This state-of-the art technology uses multiple low-dose images at multiple angles to produce a series of one-millimeter images that create a 3D reconstruction of the breast. This enhanced visualization aids in the detection of breast cancer, and greatly reduces the need for additional imaging.

3D mammography offers many advantages to traditional mammograms including:

  • 40% increase in early detection of invasive breast cancers; 35% increase in all other breast cancer detection.
  • 40% decrease in false-positives, reducing unnecessary call backs.

All of our radiologists are fellowship trained, board certified, and are solely dedicated to breast imaging. Our Breast Imaging Clinic is fully accredited by the American College of Radiology and the FDA.

Your mammogram appointment

Take time for your health. Making your appointment for a screening mammogram is simple.

If possible, obtain prior mammograms and make them available to the technologist at the time of the exam. Your prior mammograms can be valuable tools for our radiologist in interpreting your examination.

Always inform your doctor and the technologist if there is any possibility that you are pregnant. Please share any breast symptoms or problems with the technologist performing the exam.

What to expect on appointment day
  • There will be preparation for your exam. You may eat, drink and take regular medications.
  • Some women with sensitive breasts may experience discomfort. If you haven’t started menopause, schedule your mammogram for the week after your menstrual period. Your breasts are usually less tender at that time.
  • Do not wear underarm deodorant, powders, ointments or creams on your breasts on the day of the exam. These can show up on the mammogram images.
  • You will be asked to undress from the waist up, so it is advisable to wear clothing that can be removed for your exam. You will be provided a gown to wear during the examination.
  • Please bring something to tie back long hair.
  • Always inform your doctor and the technologist if there is any possibility that you are pregnant.
  • Please share any breast symptoms or problems with the technologist performing the exam.
