EARLY DETECTION SAVES LIVES
A more accurate way to screen for breast cancer
Conventional 2D mammograms provide doctors with a 2D image to evaluate the breast.
This can be limiting due to overlapping layers of tissue, which can sometimes produce
unclear results, false alarms, or worse–cancer being missed.
Our 3D exams deliver a series of detailed breast images, allowing your doctor to better
evaluate your breasts layer by layer, and over 100 clinical studies support the benefits
of this technology. Studies show that 3D Mammography has greater accuracy than 2D
mammography for women across a variety of ages and breast densities.
Better, Earlier Breast Cancer Detection
WHAT IT DOES
• Detects significantly more breast cancer compared to 2D mammography alone.
For some women, this could mean an earlier diagnosis.
• Reduces callbacks by up to 40% compared to 2D mammography alone.
For many women, this means being spared the emotional, practical, and economic
toll of additional testing, including biopsies, when there could be nothing wrong.
• Provides greater accuracy for women across a variety of ages and breast densities.
Any woman who is due to have a traditional mammogram can elect to have a
3D exam. They are covered and paid for by Medicare, as well as a growing
number of private insurers.

In 2014 alone, more than 200,000 women were diagnosed with an invasive form
