Digital Mammography At Springfield Hospital


Springfield Hospital uses Tomosynthesis (3D mammograpy) which is the latest technology in breast cancer screening. This new technology provides a much more clear picture of the overall breast tissue.

The technology works very similarly to conventional digital mammography, however, rather than taking a two dimensional image, the new scanning equipment takes 3D images. The result is a much more detailed representation of what the breast tissue looks like.

3D mammography can "significantly detect more invasive cancers than the traditional mammogram" according to a recent study published in the Journal of the American Medical Association, reporting that 3D mammography greatly reduced call-backs for women to undergo secondary imaging.
