Conemaugh Breast Imaging offers state-of-the-art breast imaging technology.
3D Breast Tomosynthesis helps improve breast cancer detection, reduce false-positive findings and cut back the need for patient call backs.
True Breast Tomosynthesis is 3D mammogram technology that is proven to detect breast cancer better than traditional 2D mammography alone. While standard 2D mammograms take an image of the top and bottom side of a patient’s breast, True Breast Tomosynthesis takes 25 images of the breast from many angles as the X-ray tube moves across the breast in a 50-degree arc.
The images are assembled into a 3D study so doctors can see the breast tissue in fine detail. The 3D image allows them to see clearly through breast tissue that may be overlapping, or through the tissue of women with dense breasts. They are better able to detect and diagnose small tumors and rule out abnormalities that may have looked suspicious in the patient’s 2D mammogram.
By reducing the distortion created by tissue overlap or dense breast tissue in 2D mammograms, physicians are better able to target the size, shape and location of a tumor. Clinical data has demonstrated that the addition of Siemens’ digital breast tomosynthesis to a patient’s traditional 2D digital mammogram increases detection of breast tumors.
