3D Mammo

3D digital mammography, also known as digital low dose breast tomosynthesis, is now offered at our
Sunwest Breast Center of Excellence. It captures multiple slices of the breast at different angles and it allows
radiologists to examine the breast tissue one layer at a time. There are no additional compressions required.
Using 3D and 2D digital mammography together has proven to significantly reduce call backs for additional views.
2D digital mammography remains to be the gold standard for early detection, but it is believed that women with
dense or complicated breast tissue or patients with increased risk for developing breast cancer may benefit
from 3D mammography.
