What is 3D Mammography?
Patients have the option to choose digital breast tomosynthesis as an initial screening modality. Digital breast tomosynthesis, commonly known as 3D mammography, has been shown to increase breast cancer detection while decreasing recalls and biopsies. 3D mammography eliminates the view of some overlapping tissue and may better clarify the reading of the mammogram for the radiologist.
