More About 3D Mammography

3D mammography, also known as tomosynthesis, is a state of the art advancement that can detect breast cancer when it's most treatable; in its earliest stages. This groundbreaking mammogram technology makes it possible for doctors to view breast tissue details in a way they've never been able to view it before. Instead of analyzing your breast images in the traditional 2D images (a single image from top to bottom), they can now view the breast tissue via a series of thin slices of detailed images, providing for a more precise analysis.

Using advanced detection mammograms in Palm Beach Gardens, Florida makes it possible for Dr. Rimmer’s patients to avoid call back mammograms and biopsies by 40% thanks to the more in depth imagery. In the majority of cases, patients will now be able to avoid the stressful false alarms they would typically experience with less advanced mammogram technologies due to suspicious findings that required further scans that usually turned out to be normal. That being said, it's still possible to get a call back for an additional scanning, but out of those that did, only 10% of the patients ended up having breast cancer. In addition, studies have shown that this ground breaking technology can detect up to 40% more cancers than traditional digital mammography alone.

While anybody can benefit from 3D mammography, women who are breast cancer survivors, are genetically predisposed to breast cancer or that have dense breast tissue, will benefit the most.
