Call now to schedule your 3D Mammography exam.
This is a revolutionary new screening and diagnostic breast imaging tool to improve the early detection of breast cancer. During the 3D part of the exam, an x-ray arm sweeps over the breast, taking multiple images in seconds. Images are displayed as a series of thin slices that can be viewed by our radiologists as individual images or in a dynamic interactive animation.Download Brochure
What should I expect during my Genius 3D MAMMOGRAPHYTM exam?
There’s no additional compression required with a Genius exam, and it only takes a few seconds longer for each view.
The technologist will view the images of your breasts at the computer workstation to ensure quality images have been captured for review. A radiologist will then examine the images and report results to either your physician or directly to you.
Who can have a Genius 3D MAMMOGRAPHYTM exam?
Multiple clinical studies show that all women, regardless of breast type or density, benefit from a Genius exam.
What about radiation?
What is the difference between a screening and a diagnostic mammogram?
Sometimes, the radiologist may ask you to come back for follow-up images, called a diagnostic mammogram, to rule out an unclear area in the breast, or if there is a breast complaint that needs to be evaluated.

Why a Genius 3D MAMMOGRAPHYTM exam?
The Genius exam is the first and only clinically superior breast tomosynthesis exam as approved by the FDA.
The Genius exam allows doctors to see masses and distortions associated with cancers significantly more clearly than conventional 2D mammography. Instead of viewing all of the complexities of your breast tissue in a flat image, as with conventional 2D mammography, fine details are more visible and no longer hidden by the tissue above or below.
- With early detection the five-year survival rate is almost 100%.
- 8 out of 9 diagnosed women have no family history of breast cancer.
- The GeniusTM 3D MAMMORGRAPHYTM exam, the only mammography exam proven to detect 41% more invasive breast cancers and reduce false positives by up to 40%.
- Alomost 8 million women have benefited from a Genius exam.
