3D Digital Mammography
St. Mary’s Breast Center was the first facility in Evansville to offer digital mammography, which is proven to be a superior technology in early detection of breast cancer. We are pleased to also now offer access to tomosynthesis - 3D digital mammography.
How does it work?
3D mammography is done in conjunction with traditional 2D digital mammography. During the 3D portion of the procedure, an X-ray arm sweeps in an arc over the breast, taking images of the breast from multiple angles in just seconds. A computer then produces a 3D rendering of the breast tissues in one-millimeter slices.
This picture allows our specialized breast radiologists to see tissues in greater detail, which results in greater accuracy and a better likelihood of detection and reduces the need to for additional exams or biopsies.
And, as always, your mammogram at St. Mary’s Breast Center will be read by one of our board-certified breast radiologists who specialize in reading only breast imaging.
