Faster, More Accurate 3D Mammograms with C-View Imaging

Published on: July 25, 2015

Mammograms have become an integral part of women’s health and wellness routines, especially for women in their forties and above. Unlike the mammograms of the past, new technology has increased the effectiveness of mammogram imaging to detect early signs of breast cancer. One of the newer imaging technologies that is used is 3D mammograms or breast tomosynthesis, which gives a more detailed image of the breast. However, until recently, this still needed to be combined with a second, 2D image. Now this second scan is no longer needed with the use of C-View Imaging software. 

Benefits of C-View and 3D Mammogram Imaging

While the 3D mammogram brought a more detailed, complex view of the breast tissue, it still needed to be compared to a 2D image for accuracy. This meant to get the higher resolution, women would need to be exposed to more radiation. The new C-View Imaging software has eliminated this need for the second scan, reducing the radiation exposure for patients.

The combination of the 3D mammogram with the C-View Imaging offers unprecedented results for breast cancer screening. The imaging dissects the breast tissue into sliced images that can be looked at individually, giving a higher resolution to detect signs of cancer. This has created more accurate readings, with fewer false positives that can be very upsetting to patients. In addition, the process is faster, with less compression time needed, so there is less discomfort for the patient.

For any woman undergoing regular mammograms as part of their preventive health or wellness plan, seek a radiology clinic that offers the advanced technology of 3D mammogram and C-view Imaging. It is worth the effort to get the best imaging available with the most accurate results.
