Tri Valley Health System Now Offers 3D Mammography(TM)

The statistics are alarming: 1 in 8 women will develop breast cancer in her lifetime; and, 8 out of 9 women diagnosed with breast cancer have no family history; but, with early detection, the five-year survival rate is almost 100 percent. Tri Valley Health System now proudly offers GeniusTM 3D MammographyTM exams which provide better, earlier breast cancer detection compared to 2D alone. The GeniusTM 3D MammographyTM exam finds 20 to 65 percent more invasive breast cancers than 2D mammography alone.

How does it work? The GeniusTM 3D MammographyTM exam allows doctors to examine your breast tissue layer by layer. So instead of viewing all of the complexities of your breast tissue in a flat image, as with conventional 2D mammography, fine details are more visible and no longer hidden by the tissue above or below. More than 200 clinical studies have shown that by using this technology, doctors are able to screen for breast cancer with great accuracy – which means better breast cancer detection and a reduced chance of being called back for additional screenings.

What can you expect during the exam? The process is virtually the same as your conventional 2D exam. The technologist will position you, compress your breast, and take images from different angles. And it only takes a few extra seconds for an exam, with no additional compression required, that is proven to be more accurate.

“Think of the 3D MammographyTM exam like pages in a book,” says Wendy Witte, radiology imaging tech. “If you look down at the cover, you cannot see all of the pages. But when you open it up, you can go through the entire book page by page to see everything between the covers.”

The technologist will view the images of your breasts at the computer workstation to ensure quality images have been captured for review. A radiologist will then examine the images and report results to either your physician or directly to you.

Early detection is key. Call Tri Valley Health System at 308-697-3329 to schedule your GeniusTM 3D MammographyTM exam today!
