Finding 35% More Cancers Earlier*

3D Mammography at Sentara

3D Mammography represents one of the most significant advances in breast cancer screening and prevention for all women in nearly 4 decades (when mammography was first adopted in 1969).

Early detection is the most effective tool in approaching breast cancer. Tomosysthesis technology, also known as a 3D Mammogram, allows radiologists to see cancer more easily, and sooner than ever before. Studies have shown that with 3D Mammograms, 35% more cancers are found earlier.*

Another great advantage of 3D mammography is that it helps avoid followup imaging and biopsies and the anxiety that comes along with those call back appointments.  The study shows a significant drop in the need to be called back – 38% lower recall rates* – and an 11% drop in biopsy rates.*

3D Mammography may also be particularly useful for detecting cancer in women at high risk of developing breast cancer including those with dense breast tissue and/or a family history.
