3D Mammography Test Appears to Improve Breast Cancer Detection

FR Rad1a

A recent study finds that adding a newer test to digital mammograms can increase the detection rate for breast cancer and decrease false alarm and unnecessary extra scans. Approved in the United States in 2011, 3D mammography, or tomosynthesis, is nearly identical to a routine mammogram, but the machine moves around the breast instead of remaining stationary.

Check out what industry experts are saying about the results of the study.
