Avestée Women’s Imaging Center Announces It Is Offering 3D Mammography at No Extra Cost

Avestée Women’s Imaging Center of Alamo Heights is one of the few imaging centers in San Antonio to offer 3D Digital Breast Tomosynthesis technology as part of its comprehensive breast imaging services.

There are many similarities between a 2D/3D combination mode mammogram and the 2D digital mammogram. They take almost the same amount of time, the machine looks the same, and the patient's breast is compressed in the same number of positions. The big difference is that the 3D mammogram collects images as the machine makes a quick arc over the patient’s breast tissue. These images are then reconstructed into a data set allowing the radiologist to examine the breast tissue in 1 mm slices. This 3D visibility effectively removes summatio
