Your breasts are three dimensional. Your mammogram should be too.
The Bethany Simpson Breast Center was one of the first facilities in the area to offer 3D mammography (tomosynthesis) with CView™ technology. Our Selenia® Dimensions® 3D mammography system from Hologic, the worldwide leader in mammography, is revolutionizing how breast cancer is detected today by offering a superior mammogram for all breast types.
This technology is extremely useful for women who have dense breast tissue. On a traditional mammogram, dense breast tissue appears white and sometimes can hide masses, such as cancer. 3D mammography overcomes this obstacle.
3D mammography allows our radiologists to examine breast tissue layer by layer, one millimeter at a time. Instead of viewing all of the complexities of breast tissue in a flat image, as with traditional 2D mammography, fine details are more visible and are no longer hidden by tissue above or below. Radiologists are able to see suspicious areas more clearly, decreasing the need to come back for additional imaging or unnecessary biopsies.
Research has shown up to a 40% reduction in women being called back for additional imaging and it detects more than 41% more invasive breast cancers than 2D mammography.
Patients report that the ergonomic design of this system helps deliver a more comfortable experience. And, this system offers the lowest possible radiation dose from its advanced detector technology.
All of this combined gives us the tools we need to help improve the detection of breast cancer at its earliest, most treatable, stage. Early detection increases a woman’s chance of being cured.
The Bethany Simpson Breast Center is a state-of-the-art facility with the most advanced and sophisticated imaging and diagnostic technology available. Our team is passionate about supporting our patients’ breast health and overall wellbeing.
We thank you for trusting us with your breast health and look forward to offering you the latest in breast cancer screening. 3D mammography is available at both our locations.
