Mammography

3D Mammography - Benefits include low dose radiation, excellent image quality, allows a radiologist to take multiple pictures of each breast from various angles, which differentiates it from a traditional mammogram, which takes a single image in two directions. DBT has the potential to revolutionize mammography and breast cancer screening because it removes the clutter to make a mammogram easier to read in women with all breast tissue types.

Digital Mammography - Low-dosage x-ray equipment is used to determine the presence of diseased breast tissue. Mammography is recognized by health professionals and the American Cancer Society as a highly effective tool in diagnosing breast cancer.
