We are sure you’ve already heard plenty about the importance of getting your annual mammograms in detecting breast cancer early and saving lives. But have you heard about the latest breakthrough in breast cancer screening that allows doctors to find 40% more invasive cancers than in the past?
It’s called 3D mammography, or breast tomosynthesis. This allows doctors to see breast tissue detail in a way never before possible to help find breast cancer at its earliest stages, when it is most treatable.
With 3D mammograms, doctors have the detailed information they need to identify or rule out breast cancer with greater certainty. That means there’s less of a chance you may need to come back for a repeat exam.
