The Genius 3D MAMMOGRAPHY™ exam is a more accurate procedure in the fight against breast cancer. Greater accuracy means better breast cancer detection and a reduced chance of additional screenings. The Genius exam is the only mammogram proven to:
- Detect breast cancers 15 months earlier
- Reduce unnecessary callbacks by up to 40%
- Find 41% more invasive cancers than conventional mammography alone
A 3D exam 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 conventional 2D mammogram, fine details are more visible and no longer hidden by the tissue above or below.
what to expect
The process of a 3D mammogram is the same as your conventional 2D exam. The technologist will position you, compress your breast, and take images from different angles. There's no additional compression required with the Genius 3D MAMMOGRAPHY™ exam, and only requires a few extra seconds to receive a more accurate reading of the breast tissue.
The technologist will view the images of your breasts at the computer workstation to ensure quality images have been captured for review. A radiologist will then examine the images and report results to either your physician or directly to you.
