The Women’s Imaging Center is the first and only Longmont facility to offer 3D mammography – called breast tomosynthesis – for breast cancer. Breast tomosynthesis produces a three-dimensional view of the breast tissue providing greater visibility for the radiologist to see breast tissue detail in a way not possible before.
The 3D mammogram offers exceptionally sharp breast images reducing the need to call women back for a “second look” by 20 to 40 percent, according to recent studies. In addition, studies have shown that 3D mammography finds cancers earlier than traditional 2D mammography alone, with a 27 percent increase in cancer detection and 40 percent increase in invasive cancer detection.
A 3D mammogram is very similar to a traditional mammogram. There is no additional compression of the breast and it only takes a few seconds longer for each view. Schedule a 3D mammogram 303.651.5121
