3D Mammography

Better visualization. Earlier detection. Fewer additional tests.

Sanford is the first place in western North Dakota to offer 3D mammography. With 3D mammograms, the team of experts at Edith Sanford Breast Health is able to detect breast cancer in its smallest and earliest stage.

Breast tomosynthesis, or 3D mammography, is a new FDA approved technology in the fight against breast cancer. 3D mammograms are used in conjunction with the traditional screening mammogram and may decrease the need for a diagnostic mammogram. 3D mammography eliminates the complexity of overlapping breast tissue during imaging because the camera moves over the breast and takes images from multiple angles.

The benefits of 3D mammograms include:

  • Reduced imaging call backs and additional tests.
  • Earlier detection of small breast cancers that may be hidden during 2D mammography.
  • Greater accuracy in pinpointing size, shape and location of abnormalities.
  • Greater likelihood of detecting multiple breast tumors, which occur in 15 percent of breast cancer patients.

3D mammography finds more invasive cancers, reduces recalls
3D mammography finds significantly more invasive cancers and reduces unnecessary recalls, according to a large, retrospective study published in JAMA featuring data from Edith Sanford Breast Center. Read more »
