What Is 3D Mammography?

The GeniusTM exam provides better, earlier breast cancer detection compared to 2D alone and detects 20-65% more cancer. In fact, as many as 20% of breast cancers will be missed by 2D mammography. Greater accuracy means better breast cancer detection and a reduced chance of additional screenings.

Greater Comfort

The Genius™ SmartCurve™ Breast Stabilization System is proven to deliver a more comfortable mammogram. It features a curved compression plate that reduces pinching and improves comfort in 93% of patients who reported moderate to severe discomfort with standard compression technology.

How It Works

A Genius™ 3D exam provides our radiologists with a series of detailed images of the breast. This allows them to better evaluate breast tissue layer by layer, making fine details more visible and no longer hidden by overlapping tissue.

What to Expect

The process of a Genius™ 3D mammography exam is the same as your conventional 2D exam. The technologist will position you, compress your breast, and take images from different angles. There’s no additional compression required.

The technologist will view the images of your breasts at the computer workstation to ensure quality images have been captured for review. A radiologist will then examine the images and report results to either your physician or directly to you.

Insurance Coverage

As of January 1st 2019, 3D mammography screening exams are covered by Medicare and private insurers in the state of Connecticut and not subject to copays.

*Screening mammograms are considered a preventative screening exam and as such, are not subject to co-pays.

Dense Breast

The Genius™ 3D exam has been clinically proven to greatly reduce the chance of callbacks, which are common for women with dense breasts. It is the only FDA approved 3D mammography machine to offer superior performance in women with dense breasts for routine breast cancer screening over standard 2D mammography.
