3D Mammography: The Latest in Diagnostic Imaging
3D Tomosynthesis represents the most exciting advancement in mammography in the last 30 years. Unlike traditional 2D mammography which takes images of your entire breast, the 3D Tomosynthesis machine takes images of your breast tissue in layers only 1mm thick to provide a precise, crystal clear image.
Think of 2D mammography like the cover of a book, with 3D mammography providing images of each page within the book.

Simply a Better Experience in Mammography
The cutting edge technology of 3D Tomosynthesis provides a faster, more precise mammogram than has ever been available before.
Scans are completed within seconds for a more efficient mammography experience. The images appear on the radiologist’s monitor for a more
timely diagnosis, and all images are performed and interpreted at Family Health West.
Multiple, thin layers allow utmost clarity in the scans. This not only improves the ability to detect cancer, but decreases the need for additional examinations so often needed in 2D mammography.
Earlier Cancer Detection
The clarity of the images means that precise diagnoses can be made and treatment can begin, improving the outcome.
Radiation emitted from this machine is below FDA guidelines.
At Family Health West, there’s virtually no wait for your mammogram. You really can get this done over your lunch hour.
