POSITIVE NEWS ON THE MAMMOGRAPHY FRONT: 3D™ MAMMOGRAMS REDUCE CALL BACKS

According to a new study published in the prestigious JAMA Oncology Journal, 3D™ mammograms increase breast cancer detection, cut false positives and reduce stressful and costly call backs for women. The large, multi-year study evaluated three years of 3D MAMMOGRAPHY™ screening results and follow-up data from 23,958 women. Results found that using 3D MAMMOGRAPHY™ exams for breast cancer screenings can lead to sustained and improved health outcomes for women.

This is the first evidence demonstrating that the benefits of screening with 3D MAMMOGRAPHY™ exams can improve over time, and shows that 3D MAMMOGRAPHY™ exams can reduce the number of women called back for unnecessary follow up appointments each year.

The study also found that 3D MAMMOGRAPHY™ exams increase the breast cancer detection rate when compared with traditional 2D mammography, catching cancer in its earliest, most treatable stages.
