About 3D mammography
Ascension Seton Breast Care Center provides 3D mammography (breast tomosynthesis). Unlike a traditional mammogram, 3D mammography uses X-rays to produce more detailed images of the breast by capturing multiple views at different angles. A 3D reconstructed image of the breast is generated and the radiologist and breast specialist can review images one slide at a time, almost like turning pages in a book.
At the Ascension Seton Breast Care Center, we bring together doctors and a care team to deliver care that is right for you: surgeon, radiation oncologist, medical oncologist, radiologist, pathologist, dietitian, research nurses, nurse navigators, and other specialists.
