Digital breast tomosynthesis (tomo), also known as 3D mammography, is a revolutionary new FDA-approved technology that is used for traditional screening mammograms. This new breast-imaging tool helps improve the early detection of breast cancer. 3D mammography uses advanced imaging and X-rays to create several low-dose images from different angles around the breast to create the 3D picture. This allows the physician to view your breast tissue in layers instead of one single image.

During the 3D part of the exam, an X-ray arm sweeps over the breast, taking multiple images in seconds. A computer will then produce 3D image of your breast tissue. Your breast images will then be sent the radiologist to be studied. After evaluated, the radiologist will contact your physician.

Yearly mammograms are recommended for all women older than forty years old. Those women who are at an increased risk for developing breast cancer should consult with their physician about when to start having mammograms.

ATTENTION: Please be advised that beginning Monday, October 28th, the Indianapolis campus’ elevator modernizations are scheduled to begin for the two passenger cabs! We will do one elevator at a time and each one will take approximately 10-12 weeks to complete. During this process, we ask that you please use the freight elevator and the open elevator cab while the modernizations are being done. We apologize for any inconvenience during this process but it will be well worth it once the cabs are completed!
