If you’re a woman whose cancer might have been missed, you’d call it “Genius” 3D Mammography.
In a survey of 500 US women, the most important mammogram characteristic to them found was: “uses technology that is proven to detect cancer early.”
Since 2011, over 8 million women have benefited from the first clinically proven, superior 3D mammography approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA). Conventional 2D mammograms provide doctors with a 2D image to evaluate the breast. This can be limiting due to overlapping layers of tissue, which can sometimes produce unclear results, false alarms, or worse – cancer being missed.
Genius exams deliver a series of detailed breast images, allowing your doctor to better evaluate your breasts layer by layer, and over 200 clinical studies support the benefits of this technology. Studies show that the Genius™ 3D Mammography exam has greater accuracy than 2D mammography for women across a variety of ages and breast densities. And it’s the only mammogram FDA approved as superior for women with dense breasts.
The Genius 3D Mammography exam consists of a 2D and 3D image set, where the 2D image can be either an acquired 2D image or a 2D image generated from the 3D image set. The Genius exam is only available on the Hologic 3D Mammography system.
Greater accuracy means better breast cancer detection and a reduced chance of being called back for additional screenings.
