3D Mammography in Portland

Your breast is three-dimensional — your mammogram should be too

The 3D mammography exam allows doctors to examine your breast tissue layer by layer. So, instead of viewing all of the complexities of your breast tissue in a flat image, as with conventional 2D mammography, fine details are more visible and no longer hidden by the tissue above or below.

Benefits of 3D mammography include:

  • Detects 41 percent more invasive-type breast cancers
  • With early detection, the five-year survival rate is almost 100 percent
  • Reduces false positives by up to 40 percent
