- The newest generation of breast imaging
- FDA approved
- The breast is imaged at different angles to minimize the effect of overlap and thus raising the detection rate.
As compared to 2D mammogram, 3D has:
- 41% increase in invasive breast cancer detection rate
- Short time under compression ~3.75s, less discomfort
- Comparable radiation dose
