SAVING LIVES

St. Joe's Offers 3D Mammography

Introducing GE SenoClaire Digital Breast Tomosynthesis

3D mammography technology provides far more detailed images with hundreds of digital “slices” all within the same amount of time it takes to have a 2D mammogram. There is no increased radiation or discomfort for the patient, and the results are remarkably detailed and thorough. This enhanced, complex system of imaging helps reduce false-positives and can often rule out the need for additional screenings like biopsies – including the emotional costs to you and your family.

At Last - ideal mammography imaging for dense breasts

3D mammography is also very effective in providing accurate diagnoses in the 40 percent of women of mammography age with dense breast tissue. While not abnormal, having dense breast tissue can pose a greater cancer risk, and present obstacles to accurate imaging by conventional 2D mammography.

3D saves lives

Ultimately, 3D mammography technology will help with the early detection and effective treatment of breast cancer – and save more lives.
