Houston Centers Offering 3D MammographyJune 15, 2015< Back To News
ADDISON, TEXAS (June 15, 2015) — Tomosynthesis, added to digital mammography, results in a significant reduction in recalls while finding more invasive cancers earlier according to a recent study published in the Journal of the American Medical Association (JAMA).
Dr. Steven Rose, chief medical officer of Solis Mammography, was a principal investigator and co-author of this study.
“With 3D technology, we can significantly reduce the patient anxiety generated by recalls for additional imaging," says Dr. Rose. “This new technology increases the accuracy of traditional digital mammography in the early detection of invasive tumors. When women add 3D to their annual mammogram, they should have peace of mind knowing they are getting the most accurate screening available.”
In this study, researchers compared the performance of screening digital mammography alone (281,187 cases) against the performance after tomosynthesis was added to mammography (173,663 cases) at 13 sites in geographically diverse regions across the United States.
“I truly believe that as experience grows with 3D mammography, we will see the recall rates continue to drop and we will detect tumors earlier when less treatment is required. This is a very exciting study for all women undergoing screening mammography,” states Dr. Rose.
