An optional service for mammography patients, Tomosynthesis (3D Mammography) can offer better visualization for radiologists who are helping certain groups of patients—particularly those with dense breasts. This improvement in visualization can result in fewer callbacks and, thus, less anxiety for patients. We’re thrilled to be able to offer 3D Mammography to our patients, but it’s important to remember that 2D digital mammography remains the gold standard for early detection and has been proven to reduce mortality from breast cancer in all age groups starting at age 40. Talk to your doctor today to find out if 3D mammography is right for you, and rest easy knowing that, either way, Optimal Imaging has you covered.
