The importance of Breast Cancer Awareness

Women with personal risk factors for developing breast cancer may consider supplemental screening procedures, such as low dose 3D mammography, in addition to screening mammography. Early detection is key to preventing breast cancer deaths.

What should I expect during the low doseĀ 3D mammogram?

A 3D mammogram looks and feels like a regular mammogram. An x-ray arm scans over your breast taking multiple 3D images at various angles. Each scan takes about 4 seconds and the entire 3D mammogram lasts about 15-20 minutes.

What makes this a low dose 3D mammogram?

New imaging software used with our 3D mammogram units enables us to offer a lower-dose 3D exam. The software eliminates the need to obtain additional 2D images as part of the 3D exam, as previously required. This reduces the radiation dose, making it similar to that of a traditional 2D mammogram.

Who can have a low dose 3D mammogram?

3D mammography is FDA-approved for all women who are undergoing a standard mammogram and elect to have this additional technology added to their exam. Your doctor may also prescribe 3D technology for diagnostic mammograms.

Is there an additional cost?

Medicare and many commercial insurances, including most BlueCross BlueShield plans, are now covering the cost of 3D mammography. We advise checking with your insurance provider to determine coverage. If 3D mammography is not covered, an additional fee will apply at the time of service.
