What is a Mammogram?
A mammogram is a low-dose, digital X-ray of your breasts. Doctors use it to help detect and diagnose breast disease in women. Women are advised to get annual screening mammograms starting at age 40 as these screenings often may detect changes in the breast that are too subtle to find during a physical examination. If detected early, nearly all breast cancers can be successfully treated!
Leading-Edge Technology: 3-D Mammography
Rose Breast Center only uses digital mammography technology – in fact, Rose was the first breast center in Denver to offer all-digital mammography. Rose is also one of the first breast centers in Colorado to offer 3D Mammography, called tomosynthesis—the latest in detection technology.
By taking multiple images from a variety of angles, tomosynthesis generates a 3-D reconstruction of the breast. Unlike a traditional mammogram, which generates a 2-D image, the 3-D mammogram provides a higher quality image to better analyze potential abnormalities. This technology is particularly useful for women with dense breasts. Rose also provides other screening services for dense breasts, including ultrasound and MRI, which your primary care physician may choose for your care.
Dense breast tissue is comprised of more connective tissue, which may mask abnormalities in a routine 2-D mammogram.
