3D Mammography Now Available at Clara Barton Hospital

Clara Barton Hospital is proud to provide 3D Mammography right here close to home. Clara Barton Hospital is the only facility within a 50-mile radius that provides on-site 3D mammograms available Monday through Friday for patient convenience.

How it Works

The Hologic Genius™ 3D Mammography™ exam allows doctors to examine your breast tissue layer by layer. So, instead of viewing all of the complexities of your breast tissue in a flat image, as with conventional 2D mammography, fine details are more visible and no longer hidden by the tissue above or below. The Genius™ exam consists of a 2D and 3D™ image set, where the 2D image can be either an acquired image or a 2D image generated from the 3D™ image set. More than 200 clinical studies have shown that by using this technology, doctors are able to screen for breast cancer with much greater accuracy — regardless of a woman’s age or breast density. Clinically proven to deliver a more comfortable mammogram, the SmartCurve system’s curved compression surface improves comfort in 93% of patients who reported moderate to severe discomfort with standard compression.

The Hologic Genius™ 3D Mammography™ exam provides better, earlier breast
cancer detection. It finds 20-65% more invasive breast cancers than 2D mammography alone. Genius exams have also been proven to reduce unnecessary callbacks by up to 40%.

What to Expect During Exam

The process of a Hologic Genius™ 3D Mammography™ exam is the same as your conventional 2D exam. The technologist will position you, compress your breast, and
take images from different angles. For an exam proven to be more accurate, there’s no additional compression required with the Genius™ exam. The technologist will view the images of your breasts at the computer workstation to ensure quality images have been captured for review. A radiologist will then examine the images and report results to either your physician or directly to you.

From the patient’s point of view, very little is different during the actual procedure of a 3D mammogram compared to a 2D mammogram. Most woman will have the opportunity to use the curved paddles designed for patient comfort and experience a similar scan time, but the main difference lies in the superior imaging.

The Benefits

  • 3D mammography offers multiple benefits such as:
  • Better detection – Regardless of the size and density of breast tissue, the higher resolution imaging aids in early detection, catching 20-65% more invasive breast cancers than the standard 2D mammogram.
  • Better comfort – The SmartCurve system’s curved compression surface improves comfort in 93% of patients who reported moderate to severe discomfort with standard compression.
  • Less unnecessary callbacks – A greater peace of mind is provided by reducing the chance of unnecessary callbacks by up to 40% compared to the standard 2D mammogram.
  • Quick scan time – The GeniusTM 3D Mammography exams offers one of the fastest scan times, limiting time under compression to less than 4 seconds.
  • No additional radiation exposure – With a quick scan time, GeniusTM 3D Mammography exams take both 2D images and 3D images at the same time, reducing time of radiation exposure.
