3D mammography or breast tomosynthesis is a revolutionary new screening and diagnostic tool designed for early breast cancer detection that can be done in conjunction with a conventional 2D digital mammogram. During the 3D part of the exam, the X-ray arm sweeps in a slight arc over the breast, taking multiple breast images. Then, a computer produces a 3D image of the breast tissue in one millimeter layers or “slices,” providing greater visibility for the radiologist to see breast detail in a way never before possible. The additional 3D images make it possible for a radiologist to better visualize breast tissue during screening, significantly improving early breast cancer detection by up to 40 percent, as well as reducing the need for follow-up imaging by up to 40 percent.
