3D Mammography (Tomosynthesis) is a digital mammography option for some patients, particularly those with dense breasts, that allows physicians to examine breast tissue layer by layer. Instead of viewing all the complexities of breast tissue in a flat image, as with traditional 2D mammography, fine details are more visible and no longer hidden by the tissue above or below. This improvement in visualization increases invasive cancer detection rates by 40%, and reduces callback rates as much as 15%, thus reducing patient anxiety when called to return for additional imaging. Consult your physician to know if 3D Mammography is the best option for you. Tomosynthesis is not yet covered by all insurance and will require a $50 co-pay at the time of service.
