3D Mammography in East Dallas
“3D mammography provides greater sensitivity when screening for breast abnormalities than 2D mammography,” said David Zorinsky, MD, a breast-fellowship-trained radiologist on the medical staff at Baylor Scott & White Medical Center – White Rock who specializes in breast imaging. “Studies published in The Journal of the American Medical Association shows that 3D mammography decreases the number of false-positive results, as well as the need for recall testing, which can be very stressful for women.”
Unlike traditional mammography, 3D mammography creates multiple breast images in just seconds, allowing providers to examine breast tissue one layer at a time. 3D mammography is especially helpful to women with dense breast tissue because it provides a clearer picture.
The Benefits of 3D Mammography:
- Clearer view through dense breast tissue, and better accuracy in determining size, shape and location of abnormalities in the breast
- Fine details are more visible and are less likely to be hidden by overlapping tissue
- Improved detection of breast abnormalities by 27 to 50 percent
- Decrease in false alarms due to abnormalities in the breast tissue
- Reduction in additional testing
- Fewer repeat images may be needed, reducing the exposure to radiation
Annual mammograms are an important part of a woman’s wellness routine, generally beginning at age 40. Call the Imaging Center on Lovers Lane today to schedule your 3D mammogram at 214.324.6220.
*You do not need a physician referral/order to schedule your annual screening mammogram. Although we accept all major insurance, please note that 3D mammography may not be covered by some insurance plans.
