Genius™ 3D Mammography™ Exams
We are thrilled to offer Genius™ 3D Mammography™ exams at Newberry Hospital. A more accurate way to screen for breast cancer, the Genius™ exam is available on the Hologic® 3D Mammography™ system.
How the Genius™ 3D Mammography™ Exam Works
Unlike a 2D mammogram, Genius™ exams allow doctors to evaluate your breasts layer by layer through a series of detailed breast images. With a 2D mammogram, the doctor would only have the ability to evaluate the breast based on a 2D image. With the Genius™ 3D Mammography™ exam, doctors are able to examine overlapping breast tissue which means clearer results, less callbacks for additional screenings and more peace of mind.
Why Choose a 3D Mammography Exam?
- No matter your age or breast density, the Genius™ exam provides more accurate breast cancer detection. In fact, it is the only mammogram FDA approved as superior for women with dense breasts.
- The Genius™ exam limits time under compression to less than four seconds, meaning less pain and discomfort.
- The Genius™ exam finds 20-65% more invasive breast cancer compared to 2D mammography alone, which can lead to an earlier breast cancer detection and a greater ability of treatment options.
- With a 40% reduction in callbacks compared to 2D mammography alone, the Genius™ exam can save women time, potentially unnecessary worry and the expense of additional testing.
