3D imaging

Tomosynthesis (3D) mammography is a new digital technology that allows doctors to examine breast tissue one layer at a time. It uses high-power computing to convert digital breast images into a stack of very thin layers or "slices" – building what is essentially a "3-dimensional mammogram."

Tomosynthesis may be used in conjunction with traditional digital mammography as part of your annual screening mammogram to capture more breast images. Very low X-ray energy is used during the examination so your radiation exposure is safely below the American College of Radiology (ACR) guidelines.
