Northwest Breast Imaging Center is now offering the 3D mammography for breast cancer screening. The 3D mammography produces a three-dimensional view of the breast tissue that helps radiologists identify and characterize individual breast structures without the confusion of overlapping tissue.

Research has shown the Hologic 3D mammography screening has increased cancer detection and reduced the numbers of false positives.
Researchers found that 3D mammography finds significantly more invasive or lethal cancers than a traditional mammogram.
