Why Choose 3D Mammography?

The Gold Standard of Breast Imaging

Digital Breast Tomosynthesis (DBT), also called 3D mammography is the gold standard of breast imaging. DBT is very similar to a regular mammogram. The technolgist will compress your breast and take images from many angles, making a layered three-dimensional image. The radiologist is then able to view the breast one thin layer at a time, almost like turning the pages in a book. This means greater detail in each image. DBT is recommended for all types of breast density, although it is especially effective for imaging dense breasts.

The benefits of DBT:

  • Improved cancer detection rates, especially for invasive cancers
  • The same or slightly lower x-ray does than a regular digital mammogram
  • A decrease in call-backs for more imaging


DBT is not necessary for everyone, and is not covered by all insurances, so please ask your doctor if this is right for you.
