St. Mary’s Medical Center offers the most comprehensive breast imaging capabilities found in San Francisco and is proud to offer mammogram screenings utilizing next-generation tomosynthesis (3D mammography) technology.

Using breakthrough three-dimensional imaging technology, tomosynthesis offers more accuracy than a standard mammogram. A tomosynthesis mammogram is a fast, FDA-approved exam in which the breast is positioned the same way as in a conventional mammogram.

Benefits Of Tomosynthesis

The benefits of tomosynthesis include:

  • Earlier detection of small cancers – a factor that dramatically affects survival and treatment.
  • Greater accuracy in pinpointing size, shape and location of abnormalities, which results in fewer follow-up office visits and unneeded biopsies.
  • Better detection of multiple breast tumors, which can occur in 15 percent of breast cancer patients.
  • More precise images of dense breast tissue.
