Mammograms

A mammogram is a method of detecting a lump in the breast before it is large enough to be felt by the touch. The American Cancer Society states that mammograms offer women the best opportunity for early breast cancer detection.

Breast tomosynthesis (3D mammography)

Breast tomosynthesis (TOMO), is a revolutionary breast cancer detection technology, which produces a 3D image of the breast tissues. (Traditional mammography obtains a single image.) TOMO has the potential to significantly increase the cancer detection rate in women with dense breasts. The multiple images give doctors a clearer view of breast masses, which can make it easier to detect breast cancer.

3D mammogram advantages

Palms West Hospital is committed to the fight against breast cancer. By offering TOMO, our breast center provides the latest in imaging technology. 3D mammograms offer the following advantages:

  • Sharper, more detailed images
  • Faster and more accurate results
  • Potential for earlier cancer detection and treatment
  • Fewer false positives and retests
