Your breast is three-dimensional. Your mammogram should be too.


Genius 3D mammography™ allows doctors to examine your breast tissue layer by layer. So, instead of viewing all of the complexities of your breast tissue in a flat image, as with traditional 2D mammography, fine details are more visible and no longer hidden by the tissue above or below

Breast Tomosynthesis

Breast Tomosynthesis is an exciting technology that is revolutionizing breast imaging. It has demonstrated value in both screening and diagnostic evaluations. The improvements in clinical performance, compared to 2D mammography, are significant. Multiple peer-reviewed clinical publications report that the use of two-view tomo in screening offers both improved cancer detection rates and reduced callback rates compared to 2D alone.  Clinical Studies using the Hologic 3D Mammography system have demonstrated superior performance in the detection of masses and architectural distortions and equivalent or slightly better performance in the detection of microcalcifications in using 2D Plus Tomo imaging compared to 2D alone.

There is a growing body of evidence that 3D mammography has the potential to reduce the number of exposures needed for diagnostic imaging and provide other diagnostic benefits, including enhanced performance in assessing tumor size and stage and more clearly demonstrating margins and extent of lesions.

What to expect during your exam.

A Genius 3D mammography exam is very similar to having a traditional 2D mammogram. Like a 2D mammogram, the technologist will position you, compress your breast, and take images from different angles. There’s no additional compression required with Genius 3D mammography, and it only takes a few seconds longer for each view.
