Breast Density and MammogramsDiagnostic Imaging Services shares an excellent resource, care of the American Cancer Society, on the above topic of dense breasts and mammogram reports.

Breast density can be determined only by mammograms. It is not related to breast size or firmness. A woman may think that because her breasts are firm, they are dense; but breast density is not determined by how breasts feel. When a DIS radiologist looks at your mammogram, they determine your breast density.

For women with dense breast tissue, women who have breast implants or who had prior biopsy or surgery, 3D mammography can help with the examination of the breast.

3D mammography is performed at the following DIS locations:

  • Metairie – 4241 Veterans Memorial Boulevard, Suite 100
  • Marrero – 925 Avenue C
  • Slidell – 1310 Gause Boulevard
  • Covington – 71154 Highway 21
