At Columbus OB/GYN, we are committed to providing the highest quality of care for your breast health. We offer advanced breast imaging services, including 3D mammography, to enhance early detection and improve the accuracy of breast cancer screenings.
3D mammography, also known as digital breast tomosynthesis, is an advanced imaging technology that creates a three-dimensional view of the breast tissue. It uses a low-dose X-ray to capture multiple images of the breast from different angles, allowing healthcare providers to examine the breast tissue layer by layer. This enables a more detailed and comprehensive evaluation of the breast, improving the detection of abnormalities.
At Columbus OB/GYN, we believe that knowledge empowers expectant parents. We provide a wealth of educational resources to guide you through each stage of pregnancy. From informative classes on childbirth preparation, breastfeeding, and newborn care to online resources and support groups, we strive to ensure you are well-informed and confident in making decisions for your pregnancy and birth experience.
3D mammography provides a more detailed view of breast tissue, making it easier to detect small tumors or abnormalities that may be hidden in a traditional 2D mammogram. This can lead to earlier detection of breast cancer and potentially higher survival rates.
With 3D mammography, there is a decreased likelihood of false-positive results, reducing the need for additional imaging or unnecessary biopsies. The clearer images obtained through 3D mammography help healthcare providers distinguish between the normal breast tissue and potential abnormalities more accurately.
3D mammography allows for better visualization of dense breast tissue, which is common in younger women. By providing a clearer image of the breast tissue, 3D mammography helps overcome the limitations of traditional mammography in dense breasts.
A 3D mammogram is a non-invasive and painless procedure performed by a trained technologist at Columbus OB/GYN. Here is what you can expect during your visit:
You will be positioned in front of the mammography machine, and your breast will be compressed between two plates for a few seconds while the X-ray images are taken. The technologist will ensure proper positioning and minimal discomfort during the procedure.
Columbus OB/GYN is proud to offer 3D mammography as part of our comprehensive breast health services. Our skilled team of healthcare professionals is dedicated to providing personalized care in a comfortable and compassionate environment.
