Women who undergo routine mammograms at the Women's Imaging Center have the latest screening and diagnostic technology available to them. Longmont United Hospital is one of the first hospitals in Boulder County to offer 3D breast tomosynthesis – also known as 3D mammography.
3D mammography offers exceptionally sharp breast images, an advanced ergonomic design providing more patient comfort, and a ground-breaking 3D tomosynthesis platform designed to deliver superior screening and diagnostic performance.
Breast tomosynthesis is a revolutionary technology that gives radiologists the ability to identify and characterize individual breast structures without the confusion of overlapping tissue. During a breast tomosynthesis exam, multiple, low-dose images of the breast are acquired at different angles. These images are then used to produce a series of one-millimeter thick slices that can be viewed as a 3D reconstruction of the breast.
The advantages to 3D mammography include:
- Greater Accuracy
- Early Detection
- 40% fewer call backs
- Reduced false positives
Additional Women's Imaging Center Diagnostics Include:
- Breast MRI
- Breast Ultrasound
- Stereotactic Biopsy
- Ultrasound-guided Biopsy
- MRI Guided Biopsy
- Needle Localization
