3D Mammography

service hero

3D mammography is a specialized medical and breast imaging technique that provides a more comprehensive view of the breast tissue. The detailed images of the scan allows our physicians to take a closer look at breast tissue layer by layer to help with early detection and breast cancer diagnosis.

Regular mammogram appointments are key to women’s health, since this form of women’s imaging can find breast cancer up to three years before it can be felt. If symptoms are present in the breast, such as a lump, pain, nipple discharge, or skin changes, additional images may be taken which target a specific area of concern.

How to prepare for your mammography visit.

Before your exam

  • Avoid using any powders, deodorant or perfume under your arms or on your breasts or chest.
  • Bring any prior imaging studies with you if these were performed at another facility.

During your exam

  • The breast will be compressed to show detail of each breast. Two compressions are made of each breast.
  • The compression lasts only a few seconds, but may be uncomfortable for some.
  • 3D Mammography exams typically take about 10-15 minutes, provided no additional imaging is necessary.
