What is 3D Mammography?

A Genius 3D Mammography™ exam (also known as breast tomosynthesis) is very similar to a traditional mammogram in which x-ray images are taken of the breasts. During the 3D part of the exam, the X-ray arm sweeps in a slight arc over the breast, taking multiple breast images in just seconds. Your doctor is then able to view your breast tissue in one millimeter layers. Instead of viewing all the complexities of your breast tissue in one flat image, the doctor can examine the tissue one page or “slice” at a time so fine details are more visible. There is no additional compression required with the 3D exam, and it only takes a few seconds longer for each view. More than 100 clinical studies have shown that by using this technology, doctors are able to screen for breast cancer with much greater accuracy — regardless of a woman’s age or breast density.1-7*

Very low X-ray energy is used during the screening examination so your radiation exposure is below the FDA guidelines. The Genius™ 3D Mammography™ exam reduces callbacks.  In addition, only the Genius 3D Mammography™ exam is proven to help more invasive breast cancers compared to 2D alone. The Genius 3D exam is also the only mammogram FDA approved as superior for women with dense breasts. It is truly a better mammogram for all women.

Why is it used?

Screening mammography

Doctors and scientists agree that early detection is the best defense against breast cancer. Successful treatment and survival rates for breast cancer patients are dramatically affected by early detection of breast cancers. If we find breast cancer early, before it has spread to lymph nodes, the five-year survival rate is almost 100 percent.1 It is recommended that women who are not at a high risk of breast cancer get screening mammograms starting at age 40 and repeat annually.

Diagnostic mammography

Diagnostic mammography is used to investigate suspicious breast changes, such as a new breast lump, breast pain, an unusual skin appearance, nipple thickening or nipple discharge. It’s also used to evaluate abnormal findings on a screening mammogram. A diagnostic mammogram includes additional mammogram images.

What should I expect?

You will be given a gown and asked to remove jewelry around your neck and clothing from the waist up. A Genius 3D Mammography™ exam is very similar to a traditional mammogram. Just as with a digital mammogram, the technologist will gently position you, compress your breast under a paddle and take images from different angles. A 3D exam may be used as a screening tool in conjunction with a traditional digital mammogram or may be used by itself for a diagnostic mammogram. During the Genius part of the exam, the X-ray arm sweeps in a slight arc over the breast, taking multiple breast images in just seconds. Your doctor is then able to view your breast tissue in one millimeter layers. Instead of viewing all the complexities of your breast tissue in one flat image, the doctor can examine the tissue one page or “slice” at a time. There is no additional compression required with Genius exam, and it only takes a few seconds longer for each view. The technologist will view the images at a computer workstation to ensure adequate images have been captured for review by a radiologist, who studies them and reports results to either your physician or directly to you.</div
