Montclair Breast Center introduces 3D Mammography.
Date:5/2/2013

Montclair, NJ (PRWEB) May 02, 2013

Montclair Breast Center is one of the first women’s centers in New Jersey to offer 3D mammography (breast tomosynthesis) for breast cancer screening. Breast tomosynthesis produces a three-dimensional view of the breast tissue that helps radiologists identify and characterize individual breast structures without the confusion of overlapping tissue.

The center’s Selenia® Dimensions® breast tomosynthesis system is made by Hologic, a world leader in digital mammography. The Selenia Dimensions system offers exceptionally sharp breast images, an advanced ergonomic design providing more patient comfort, and the ground-breaking tomosynthesis platform designed to deliver superior screening and diagnostic performance.

Breast tomosynthesis will benefit all screening and diagnostic mammography patients, and is especially valuable for women receiving a baseline screening, those who have dense breast tissue and/or women with a personal history of breast cancer.

Breast cancer screening with tomosynthesis when combined with a conventional 2D mammography has a higher cancer detection rate than conventional 2D mammography alone.{1} Tomosynthesis technology gives radiologists increased confidence with a significant reduction in recall rates. {2}

The tomosynthesis screening experience is similar to a traditional mammogram. During a tomosynthesis exam, multiple, low-dose images of the breast are acquired at different angles. These images are then used to produce a series of one-millimeter thick slices that can be viewed as a 3D reconstruction of the breast.

Breast cancer is the second leading cause of cancer death among women, exceeded only by lung cancer. Statistics indicate that one in eight women will develop breast cancer sometime in her lifetime. The stage at which breast cancer is detected influences a woman’s chance of survival. If detected early, the five-year survival rate is 98 percent. {3}

Of patients who began and continued their screening at Montclair Breast Center and were diagnosed with breast cancer in 2012, 95% were diagnosed at the most treatable Stages 0 or 1. The national average for such early diagnosis in all women is just 60%. This extremely high rate of early detection reflects Montclair Breast Center’s breast imaging expertise, physician/patient collaboration, and attention to detail.

In offering breast tomosynthesis digital mammography, Montclair Breast Center provides the latest in imaging technology. If you would like to schedule a 3D mammogram or have questions about this important breast health procedure, please visit Montclair Breast Center, or call 973-509-1818.
