St. Croix Regional Medical Center offers digital and 3D mammography exams. Utilizing advanced technology, the 3D mammography exams are clinically proven to significantly increase the detection of breast cancers, while simultaneously decreasing the number of women asked to return for additional testing.
The exam includes both 2D images and 3D scans. During the 3D portion of the exam, an x-ray arm sweeps in slight arc over the breast, taking multiple images. A computer then converts the images into a stack of thin layers, allowing the radiologist to review the breast tissue one layer at a time. The 3D exam requires no additional compression and takes just a few seconds longer than a conventional 2D breast cancer screening exam.
