What is 3D mammography?

*3D mammography (tomosynthesis) is an FDA-Approved technology that complements conventional 2D mammography.

*When 3D and 2D mammography are used together, some studies show that it may improve cancer detection rates.

*While traditional mammography generates a 2D image, tomosynthesis creates a 3D image of the breast allowing the radiologist to evaluate thin mammography sections of the breast, minimizing superimposed tissue.

*3D mammography can provide a clearer image of the breast tissue and may reduce the need for additional imagining.

What should I expect during the 3D mammogram?

*3D mammography is performed at the same time as 2D mammography, using the same system and with no additional breast compression.

*At x-ray arm sweeps in an arc over your breast taking images from multiple angles. Images are combined to create a 3D mammogram.

*3D tomosynthesis does involve additional radiation when compared to the standard 2D mammogram. The total radiation dosage of having both studies is below current MQSA guidelines.

Who can have a 3D mammogram?

*3D mammography is FDA-approved for all women who are undergoing a standard mammogram and elect to have this additional technology added to their exam.

Is there an additional cost to add 3D to my conventional mammogram?

*Medicare now covers the cost of 3D mammography. Please check with your private insurance company for coverage. If your insurance company does not provide coverage then there is an additional fee due at the time of service.

More Information:

*Please do not hesitate to ask one of our associates if you have additional questions.

I am a free-lance writer and Blogger. I am the author of the book "Firehouse 101" (IUniverse.com 2005) part of trilogy of books centered in New York City. My next book "Love Triangles" is finished being edited and should be ready for release in the Fall. My latest book, "Dinner at Midnight", a thriller is on its last chapter. My long awaited book explains the loss of the 2004 Yankee game to Boston. I work as a Consultant, Adjunct College Professor, Volunteer Fireman and Ambulance member and Blogger. I have a blog site for caregivers called 'bergencountycaregiver', a step by step survival guide to all you wonderful folks taking care of your loved ones, a walking project to walk every block, both sides, of the island of Manhattan "MywalkinManhattan" and discuss what I see and find on the streets of New York and three sites to accompany it. One is an arts site called "Visiting a Museum", where I showcase small museums, historical sites and parks that are off the beaten track both in Manhattan and outside the city to cross reference with "MywalkinManhattan" blog site. Another is "DiningonaShoeStringNYC", featuring small restaurants I have found on my travels in this project, that offer wonderful meals for $10.00 and under. So be on the lookout for updates on all three sites and enjoy 'MywalkinManhattan'. The third is my latest site, "LittleShoponMainStreet", which showcases all the unique and independent shops that I have found on my travels throughout and around Manhattan. I have started two new blog sites for the fire department, one "EngineOneHasbrouck HeightsFireDepartmentnj" for the Hasbrouck Heights Fire Department to discuss what our Engine Company is doing and the other is "BergenCountyFireman'sHomeAssociation" for the Bergen County Fireman's Association, which fire fighters from Bergen County, NJ, go to the Fireman's Home in Boonton, NJ to bring entertainment and cheer to our fellow brother fire fighters quarterly.
