Introducing 3-D Breast Mammography

We are pleased to be the only provider of 3-Dimensional Breast Mammography in the Murrieta area. 

What is 3-D Mammography?

This is a revolutionary new way to get a clearer look into breast tissue to identify cancer earlier. During the exam the X-ray arm moves in an arc over the breast to create a series of images that create a multi-dimensional look at the tissue inside. Learn more about 3-D Mammography here in this video by Hologic, the creator of the technology that we use at LLUMC-Murrieta.

What are the Benefits?

Traditional 2-D mammography provides a flat image of the breast and is less clear. With 3-D mammography the radiologist sees your breast tissue in it's real location. Tumors and irregularities are more clearly seen and diagnosed. 3-D mammography is detecting 27% more cancers at an earlier stage than traditional mammography. Call-backs for a second mammogram are greatly reduced. 

What is the Difference?

Preventative screenings are an important part of the war on cancer. Cancer detected early is still the number one way to beat this disease. 3-D mammography is the most powerful early detection tool available to physicians right now.

What about Radiation?

We invested in additional hardware and software that reduces radiation exposure from the 3-D mammogram the the same exposure as a traditional 2-D mammogram.

Will My Insurance Cover It? 

Yes, we bill for 3-D mammography the same as 2-D so it is covered.

How Can I Make My Appointment?

Women can schedule their own screenings if they are preventative. To schedule your preventative screening call us today at 951-290-4360. If you have discovered a lump please have your physician write a referral for you. If your physician needs information about the referral he or she can contact us at 951-290-4360.
