Earlier Detection, Improved Accuracy.
Davis Hospital and Medical Center offers Genius ™ 3D Mammography™ technology, an advanced, potentially life-saving breast cancer screening procedure for women. This service is administered by certified mammography technologists and interpreted by fellowship-trained breast radiologists. It’s just another way we can uphold our commitment to provide patients in Layton and the surrounding areas with excellent breast care.
Schedule your 3D™ mammogram by calling (801) 807-7120.
How Is a 3D™ Mammogram Different From Other Digital Mammograms?
A Genius ™ 3D™ mammogram captures multiple images of the breast (using x-rays) from various angles in order to create a composite image. This allows allows doctors to examine breast tissue layer by layer, versus one flat image. This technology is over 41% more accurate than traditional mammograms, which means earlier detection and fewer false alarms and callbacks for patients.
At Davis Hospital Breast Care Center, we use Hologic® Genius™ 3D Mammography™ technology. Hologic® technology is preferred in more than half of the U.S. News and World Report top 20 cancer hospitals. More than 5 million women in the United States have been screened with this technology.
Should I Get a 3D™ Mammogram or “Regular” Mammogram?
For women with denser breast tissue (generally more common in young women), 3D mammography™ technology may offer an even greater benefit. 3D™ mammograms give radiologists a clearer view of dense breast tissue – which may not always be possible with 2D digital mammograms.
Who Should Get Screened?
A yearly mammogram is recommended for all women over the age of 40. If you have any of the following risk factors, we recommend a 3D™ mammogram:
- Baseline (first mammogram)
- Prior history of breast cancer
- High risk of breast cancer
- Dense breast tissue (which can only be determined by mammography)
- Elevated lifetime risk of developing breast cancer. (At our Breast Care Center we utilize the Tyrer-Cuzick risk model to help patients identify 10-year and lifetime risk of developing breast cancer.)
In addition to 3D™ mammograms, Davis Hospital Breast Care Center offers:
- Minimally invasive biopsy
- Breast MRI
- Osteoporosis screening
- High-risk assessments
- Genetic testing
- Cancer patient navigator services
