What is a 3D Mammogram?
3D mammography (breast tomosynthesis) is the most advanced technology in breast cancer screening. The Breast Center of Greensboro Imaging is proud to have been one of the first centers in North Carolina to offer this revolutionary screening and diagnostic tool.
During the 3D part of the exam, the X-ray arm sweeps in a slight arc over the breast, taking multiple breast images in a matter of seconds. These images are then used to produce a three-dimensional view of your breast tissue in one-millimeter slices. This allows radiologists greater visibility to see detail in breast tissue in a way never before possible, help find cancers that may have previously been missed and reduce the chance your doctor will call you back unnecessarily.
All of our 3D exams are powered by C-View software, which minimizes radiation exposure and increases detection of invasive breast cancer. A low dose 3D mammography exam is a choice to protect your body from more than breast cancer.
