We are excited to announce that we offer 3D mammography at Diagnostic Imaging Specialists of Chicago. 3D mammography, also known as tomosynthesis, takes thin photographic slices throughout the breast, allowing doctors to differentiate between dense tissue and tumors that might appear. While dense breast tissue itself is not dangerous, it can pose difficulty with finding small tumors that may be hidden on conventional digital mammograms. With this leading edge technology, our doctors will be able to evaluate the breast more clearly, enabling them to detect at least 10% more breast cancers than with standard digital mammography.
Why Diagnostic Imaging Specialists of Chicago?
Currently one of the only independent practices in the Chicagoland area with this technology, Diagnostic Imaging Specialists remains patient focused with convenient scheduling and worry-free appointments accompanied by individualized, top-notch care. Patients will continue to receive same-day results and be able to speak with their doctor to answer any questions they might have.
An added benefit of 3D mammography is the early detection of smaller or hidden breast cancers. Patients who will benefit from this service include younger patients with risk factors, such as a family history of breast cancer, and patients with dense breast tissue.
