Avestée Women’s Imaging Center Now Offering 3-D Mammogram Technology in San Antonio
Date:7/31/2013

they come to me or go to another center offering 3D Tomo, I believe every woman should get a 2D/3D combo mode mammogram. If you are going to get a mammogram, do not settle for anything but the best technology available read by highly trained, dedicated women’s imagers,” said Dr. Dabbous.

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 summation artifact (harmless objects such as glandular tissue and blood vessels which are photographically superimposed to resemble cancer) from the breast imaging equation. Summation artifact is the leading cause for call back exams. Having a better, more reliable view of the breast tissue helps increase the efficacy of the test and catching breast cancer at earlier stages. 3D breast screening is particularly effective for women who have dense breast tissue.

Avestée Women’s Imaging Center opened in April 2013. The center was founded by Dr. Dabbous, a Board Certified Radiologist and graduate of the University of Texas Health Science Center in San Antonio, where she received the highest academic honor of Alpha Omega Alpha Honor Society Membership. Dr. Dabbous brings a unique imaging perspective to breast imaging. As a General Surgery intern at Emory University Hospital in Atlanta, she was able to see firsthand the full spectrum of breast cancer treatment from surgery through radiation/chemo and reconstruction. She completed her radiology residency at Baylor University Medical Center in Dallas where she received her training in mammogra
