Breast Tech: 3D Mammography at Columbia Memorial Health – Chronogram

Read article - Quotes Christine Cooley MED '06, in an article about the new state-of-the-art 3D mammography—a cutting-edge imaging technology that affords healthcare providers a more accurate view of tissue, compared to the conventional two-dimensional mammograms, which result in a higher incidence of false positives. "If the patient has really dense breast tissue, there are things that can be hiding," says Cooley. "With this new technology, I can find a little cancer inside that breast. With the older technology, I probably wouldn't have seen that cancer for another year or two until it got bigger."
