What is 3D mammography?

3D mammography is a type of digital mammography which uses advanced technology to take images of your breast from different angles and combine them to create a more complete and accurate image of your breast than is possible with regular 2D digital mammography. 3D mammography follows the same basic procedure that you’re probably accustomed to with regular 2D digital mammography. 3D lasts just a few seconds longer, slightly extending the time of minor discomfort you may feel and the low-risk radiation exposure involved with all forms of digital mammography.

Why should I get a 3D mammogram?

The more complete and accurate image of your breast generated by 3D mammography allows us to detect breast cancer earlier and more effectively than traditional 2D mammography, so that we can take action to help you fight. 3D mammography is particularly effective if you have dense breast tissue or have been given a previous cancer or lesion diagnosis. And 3D mammography’s higher accuracy means less unnecessary return visits to the doctor for false positives that turn out to be non-cancerous.

What does all of that mean for you? Greater peace of mind.

How can I get a 3D mammogram?

When you take control of your preventive health, we’re in a better position to work with you to detect any issues that arise and to help you fight them every step of the way.

As always, you should consult with your personal primary care physician to determine the type and frequency of screenings that’s best for you. If you need a primary care physician, call us at 800.424.DOCS (3627) and we’ll get you connected to the right care.
