Stoughton Health offers 3D mammography which provides better, earlier breast cancer detection for our patients. Multiple clinical studies have shown that all women regardless of breast type or density, benefit from a 3D exam. Studies have also shown 3D mammography exam results are more accurate than 2D alone and detect 20-65% more invasive breast cancers. A more accurate 3D mammography result also reduces the chances of a patient receiving an unnecessary callback.
How it Works
Women will see little difference between a conventional 2D mammogram and a 3D mammogram. The exam takes about the same amount of time – a 3.7 second scan time – and the positioning is the same. The real difference is in the information available.

Better Detection for Dense Breast Tissue
Dense breast tissue can make it difficult for doctors to detect breast cancer during annual screenings, which is concerning since women with dense breasts are more likely to develop breast cancer.
