Vancouver Radiologists is deeply committed to women’s health and breast care issues and is pleased to announce that 3D Mammography is now available at the Breast Center located near the Vancouver Mall in the Vancouver Village Shopping Center.
Breast tomosynthesis (3D Mammography) produces a three-dimensional view of the breast tissue providing improved visibility for the radiologist to see the breast tissue detail in a way not possible before. A 3D mammogram is very similar to a traditional mammogram and is performed during the same appointment. There is no additional compression of the breast and it only takes a few seconds longer for each view.
Improving Breast Cancer Detection
Breast tomosynthesis is a technological advance that has been confirmed in recent clinical studies to improve breast cancer detection accuracy both in terms of detecting harder to find cancers and decreasing the number of call backs for patients that do not have breast cancer.
