3D Mammography

3D Mammography3D Mammography is Now Available

Women in southwest Michigan have access to new 3D mammography technology, also known as digital breast tomosynthesis, at the Lakeland Health Center for Outpatient Services – Berrien County’s only “Breast Imaging Center of Excellence” as designated by the American College of Radiology. Used in combination with a 2D, or conventional, mammogram, 3D mammography requires no additional breast compression.

The generated 2D images and 3D™ slices are reviewed together to make a clinical decision or diagnosis. In comparison to conventional mammogram images, 3D mammography allows radiologists the ability to examine breast tissue one thin layer at a time, making fine details more visible and less likely to be hidden by overlapping tissue – especially for women with dense breast tissue.
