EVERYONE DESERVES 3D

Selenia® Dimensions® system’s Genius™ 3D MAMMOGRAPHY™ Simply a better mammogram.

Every year over 200,000 women in the U.S. are diagnosed with breast cancer, and every year breast cancer that has spread from the breast to other parts of the body (“late stage” or “metastatic” breast cancer) kills about 40,000 women. When breast cancer is detected early—before it has spread—it is easier to treat and women have a much better chance of surviving breast cancer.
 
For now, mammograms are the best way of screening women for breast cancer. Memorial Hospital wants to be known for and provide “up to date” technology, a leader in technology, and to offer our patients the best technology available. This new mammography machine offers low dose radiation, less callbacks, clearer picture for better accuracy
 
Memorial Hospital performed 968 mammograms between October 2015 to September 2016 with 12 false positive reports. With a 3D mammography technology, we will increase the number of mammograms we do and will decrease the number of false positives. False positives create patient anxiety and fear.

The Selenia Dimensions system’s Genius 3D MAMMOGRAPHY™ exam is the only breast tomosynthesis that offers the following advantages over 2D mammography:

  • A 41% increase in invasive breast cancer detection
  • Up to 40% reduction in false positive recalls, minimizing patient anxiety and unnecessary costs
  • Machine can lower to accommodate those in a wheelchair
  • Machine can accommodate implants
  • Also accommodates male patients
