3D Mammogram (Breast Tomosynthesis)

Diagnostic Centers of America (DCA) is once again leading the way in women's health here in our community. DCA is one of the first facilities to offer the newest type of digital mammography: 3D mammography (breast tomosynthesis.)

3D mammography is a revolutionary technology that gives Radiologists the ability to identify and characterize individual breast structures without the confusion of overlapping tissue. During a 3D tomo scan, multiple, lowdose images of the breast are acquired at different angles. These images are then used to produce a series of one-millimeter thick slices that can be viewed as a three dimensional reconstruction of the breast. Reviewing breast tissue slice by slice removes the confusion of superimposed tissue allowing the Radiologist to view a mammogram in a way never before possible.

Hologic's Genius 3D Mammography is the only 3D exam approved by the FDA as clinically superior to traditional mammography.

  • Genius 3D mammography detects 41% more invasive breast cancers.
  • Adding digital breast tomosynthesis to a screening mammography exam reduced recall rates for patients by 40%
  • DCA’s full field digital mammogram with Tomo is under the allowed dose rate set forth by the Mammo Quality Standards Act (MQSA).
