3D Mammography - Be in the Know!

Women who have regular mammograms are more likely to catch developing breast cancer EARLY, when it can be treated more successfully and with less invasive methods. Finding and treating breast cancer early dramatically increases your odds of survival.

What should I expect during my 3D mammography exam?

The process of a 3D exam is the same as a conventional 2D exam. The technologist will position you, compress your breast, and take images from different angles. There’s no additional compression required with a 3D mammo, and it only takes a few extra seconds for an exam proven to be more accurate.

Who can have a 3D mammography exam?

A 3D mammogram is more accurate for women of all ages, with both dense and non-dense breasts, and the 3D exam is the only mammogram FDA approved as superior for women with dense breasts.

What about radiation?

3D exams are comparable to a conventional 2D mammogram when using low dose software.

How does the 3D mammography exam work?

The 3D exam allows doctors to examine your breast tissue layer by layer. So, instead of viewing all of the complexities of your breast tissue in a flat image, as with conventional 2D mammography, fine details are more visible and no longer hidden by the tissue above or below. A good analogy for the 3D exam is like thinking of the pages in a book. If you look down at the cover you cannot see all of the pages—but when you open it up, you can go through the entire book page by page to see everything between the covers. At Edgerton Hospital, the exam consists of a 2D and 3D image set, where the 2D image can be either an acquired image or a 2D image generated from the 3D image set. 

This life-saving technology has been made possible through the support of our generous donors, which includes hundreds of community members and businesses. Please join us in extending a heart-felt THANK YOU!
