What is a 3D Mammogram?

Is 3D Mammography for Me?

  • 3D mammograms provide the best opportunity to catch breast cancer at its earliest stage when treatment is most effective
  • Studies show an increase in breast cancer detection rates with 3D mammography, especially for women with dense breast tissue,
  • The radiologist views breast tissue images in 1-millimeter slices, looking very carefully for anything that might require further testing.
  • Reduces the need to call patients back for additional views to evaluate suspicious areas seen on an initial exam.

Who reads my mammogram?

Amy Patel, M.D., a fellowship-trained breast radiologist, interprets the majority of mammograms at Women's Imaging. She is part of a team from Alliance Radiology who provides this service. Listen to Dr. Amy Patel's radio interview about 3D mammograms and breast cancer awareness and treatment.
