Our dedication to delivering the most innovative and progressive breast care includes providing the highest quality screening technology, such as digital tomosynthesis (TOMO). Approved by the Food and Drug Administration but not yet considered the standard of care for breast screening, tomo creates a 3-dimensional picture of the breast using X-rays. While traditional mammography takes two X-rays of each breast from different angles – top to bottom and side to side – tomosynthesis, or 3-D mammography, provides the clearest image currently available of the breast tissue. With only a few extra seconds of imaging, tomosynthesis obtains images that see through the layers of the breast tissue much more accurately than regular mammography.This provides Radiologists with a more complete picture of the breast tissue in a clear, highly focused 3-dimensional image. And while still in infancy, researchers believe this new type of breast imaging technique will make it easier for Radiologists to detect breast cancers in dense breast tissue.
Through innovative imaging services – like digital tomosynthesis – patients at the Margaret West Comprehensive Breast Center can feel confident that they are receiving the best possible care for their breast wellness needs.
