Benefits of Using 3D Imagining for Women

Tools

A new study finds digital 3D imaging of the breast leads to fewer false positive results and helps give more accurate readings.

The screening is called tomosynthesis.

Researchers at Yale compared patients who had tomosynthesis together with mammography to women who just had a mammogram.

They found women who had both types of screening were 30 percent less likely to be called back for additional imaging or biopsies.

Researchers say younger women and women with dense tissue benefited the most.
