Financier Jeffrey Epstein And Mount Sinai Hospital Support 3D Mammograms For Breast Cancer
Date:7/25/2012

NEW YORK, July 25, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- The Dubin Breast Center at Mount Sinai Hospital in New York City is one of the few places in the world that provides 3D mammography to test for breast cancer. 3D mammography was installed just over a year ago and due to its success, has received additional support from science philanthropist, Jeffrey Epstein and his foundation, The Jeffrey Epstein VI Foundation.

According to the American Cancer Society, breast cancer is the leading cause of cancer death for women between the ages of 35 and 54, and the second leading cause of cancer death for women of all ages. This year, an estimated 40,000 will die from breast cancer. Early detection is critical for long term survival: when tumors are removed before metastasis, the 5-year relative survival rate is 99%. The rate lowers to 84% when metastasis spreads to the breast; and plummets to 23% once metastasis enters the blood stream.

Pioneered at Mass General Hospital in Boston, 3D mammography or tomosynthesis was FDA approved in February 2011. Unlike 2D mammography which takes one image of the breast, 3D mammography takes about 60 images. Images are transferred to 1mm digital slices, and radiologists can see the compilation from a three dimensional point of view.

2D mammograms are still essential in saving lives. However, 3D mammography has numerous benefits. It can detect tumor tissue that couldn't otherwise be seen, especially in fibrous breasts. It has reduced the number of false positives, helping radiologists to see a cyst or calcification that might otherwise be confused for a tumor under 2D mammography. It also gives doctors a better look at the topography of tumors: how they grow and spread.

"Early diagnosis is clearly critical to survival," Jeffrey Epstein affirms
