First Large-Scale U.S. Study Validates the Benefits of 3D Mammography (Breast Tomosynthesis) Exams
Date:5/23/2013

HOUSTON, May 23, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- A recently published clinical study conducted at TOPS Comprehensive Breast Center in Houston, Texas, demonstrates that 3D mammography (breast tomosynthesis) significantly reduces unnecessary recalls while simultaneously increasing cancer detection.

The study, "Implementation of Breast Tomosynthesis in a Routine Screening Practice: An Observational Study," was led by Stephen L. Rose , MD, and published in the June issue of the American Journal of Roentgenology (AJR). The AJR is the scientific journal of the American Roentgen Ray Society, the first and oldest radiology society in the United States.

The study examined the use of Hologic's 3D mammography in conjunction with 2D mammography. The researchers found that 3D mammography:

  • Reduced recall rates by 37 percent;
  • Increased the detection of cancers by over 30 percent; and
  • Increased the detection of invasive cancers by more than 50 percent

Instead of viewing all the complexities of the breast tissue in a flat image as with a traditional mammogram, 3D mammography uses multiple low-dose images to create a 3-dimensional view of the breast. 3D mammography allows the doctor to examine 3D breast images layer-by-layer.

The 2010 through 2012 study population included 13,856 women who received conventional 2D mammography screening exams prior to the introduction of Hologic's 3D mammography and 9,499 women who received a 3D mammography screening exam. Images in both time periods were interpreted by six radiologists with an average 12 years of reading experience. 

Dr. Rose calls 3D mammography a revolutionary advance in breast cancer screening. He has been a major proponent of the technology including testifying before the U.S. Food and Drug Admini
