How do digital 2D and 3D mammograms compare?

All mammography machines are digital.

2D mammograms, which take images from the front and side of your breast, produce an electronic image that can be manipulated for greater clarity.

3D/Tomosynthesis technology allows doctors to see masses and distortion associated with cancers and precancerous cells even more clearly, particularly for women with dense breasts.

Both mammogram types use very low x-ray energy and are well within FDA safety standards for x-ray energy.

Your doctor can provide further guidance on the type of mammogram that's best for you. Contact your provider if you have questions.

Most insurance plans cover 3D mammography. Please check with your insurance carrier regarding coverage limitations, pre-authorizations,
or referrals that may be required prior to your visit.
