Digital Breast Tomosynthesis ( 3D Mammography) is used to allow radiologists the ability to accurately visualize breast tissue in a cross-sectional image. This is especially helpful when viewing dense breast tissue and can help reduce false positives and improve cancer detection. 3D Mammography is used in addition to 2D digital mammography to provide more detailed information and since it is performed simultaneously does not require additional compression. While currently this technology is only covered by Medicare, it is important to relay to our patient population that it is available to all patients with Non-Medicare patients only having to pay $100 at the time of service. 3-D Mammography is available at both DeKalb Medical North Decatur and DeKalb Medical Hillandale Breast Centers.
