Digital Mammography

Beebe Imaging and Tunnell Cancer Center offer the latest in digital mammography, including 3D mammography.

3D Mammography - Tomosynthesis

3D Mammography, or breast tomosynthesis, is the latest advance in digital mammography technology.

Beebe’s radiologists view three-dimensional images of a patient’s breast, which means earlier detection and fewer unnecessary biopsies for our patients.

The 3D mammography technology takes multiple images of breast tissue using a low-dose scan. The technology improves our radiologists' ability to see abnormalities in dense breast tissue, reducing the number of return visits. 3D mammography provides the greatest benefit to women with very dense breasts, who may be more likely to develop breast cancer, and those with a higher risk due to family history.  

This advance in comprehensive breast care is part of Beebe Healthcare's Breast Health Program, the only one in Delaware to be accredited by the National Accreditation Program for Breast Centers (NAPBC), a program administered by the American College of Surgeons.

Beebe offers 3D mammography at Bookhammer Outpatient Center on Route 24 near Rehoboth Beach, Millville, and at the Georgetown Health Campus. Schedule your mammography today by calling (302) 645-3278.
