3D Mammography/Tomosynthesis

Digital Breast Tomosynthesis or 3D mammography is state-of-the-art technology using x-rays to produce a three dimensional digital image of the breast in conjunction with a 2D image obtained with traditional digital mammography.

Tomosynthesis uses x-rays to image the breast, and rotates around the breast while taking multiple images. Those images are then assembled to produce a highly focused 3D image. Tomosynthesis allows radiologists to gain better visualization of the breast, which is the primary benefit of this new technology.

Artificial Intelligence for 3D mammography

The Hill Medical’s subspecialized Breast Imaging doctors are thrilled to offer the area’s first and only FDA-cleared Artificial Intelligence software (AI) at all of our 3D tomosynthesis mammography centers. Artificial Intelligence (AI) is a clinical software program that serves as a second of eyes for the breast imaging radiologist reading your mammogram. The program rapidly analyzes each 3D image in the mammogram and alerts the physician to any suspicious areas that may warrant a closer look.
