The leading-edge imaging technology generates a three-dimensional picture of the breast, giving providers a more complete view of tissue compared to conventional two-dimensional mammogram images.
More Effective and Less Aggressive
Several studies have found 3D mammography to be more effective than conventional mammography in identifying cancers earlier, which can lead to more effective and less aggressive treatments that yield better outcomes for patients. It is particularly more effective with denser tissues and has been found to reduce the number of false positives.
