Mammograms are a tool used to detect and diagnose breast cancer. At Northside Hospital, we’ve taken early detection to a new dimension with breast tomosynthesis.
Breast tomosynthesis, the latest in digital mammography, is a form of 3D mammography that works by using 3D technology to capture multiple images of the breast from different angles. Unlike conventional mammography, which produces a flat image, tomosynthesis produces a more detailed, multi-layered image of the breast tissue.
This 3D technology gives out dedicated women's radiologists the clearest and most detailed images for the fastest, most accurate results. This is especially important for women with dense breast tissue -- something only detected with a mammogram.
Tomosynthesis detects cancer up to 15 months earlier than traditional mammograms, reduces the risk of false positives and detects 41 percent more invasive breast cancers.*
