Traditional and 3D mammograms for patients

Traditional mammograms are used for your first screening or when you have no symptoms or issues. 3D mammography technology is for perhaps a secondary screening or those who are experiencing issues. 3D allows Beebe’s radiologists to view three-dimensional images of a patient’s breast, which means earlier detection and fewer unnecessary biopsies for our patients. All patients can request a 3D mammogram.

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 and reduces 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.
