Digital Mammography

  • Taking Diagnostic Mammography To the Next Level

    Traditional two-dimensional mammograms are an important screening tool to help detect problems – but they have limitations.

    Einstein is one of the nation’s first centers to supplement 2-D mammograms with 3D imaging and automated breast ultrasound – both recently approved by the FDA as a proven way to catch more cancers earlier.

    The new 3D imaging technology, known as digital breast tomosynthesis:

    • Takes multiple low-dose images at different angles and displays them in thin multiple layers – just like a loaf of sliced bread
    • Lets our radiologists look at smaller areas and see "through" breast tissue better than a 2-D mammogram
    • Reduces the number of false-positive results and the need to come back for further testing

    The SonoCiné automated breast ultrasound:

    • Is a complementary screening tool especially effective for women with dense breast tissue, which can make it harder to identify abnormalities
    • Has been proven in clinical trials to find more cancers – and smaller cancers – without excessive false-positive results
    • Is debuting at just 17 centers throughout the country, making us the region’s only health center to offer this technology

    We offer mammograms at convenient locations.
