A groundbreaking study was published that found 3D mammography, also known as breast tomosynthesis, significantly increased cancer detection while simultaneously reducing the number of false positives.

According to the study’s results, 3D mammography finds significantly more invasive or lethal cancers than a traditional mammogram. It also reduces the number of women called back for unnecessary screenings due to false alarms.

Below is a brief video summary. In addition to performing 3D mammography in Metairie, Diagnostic Imaging Services now also performs this superior mammogram at our Marrero and Slidell locations.
