3-D Mammography Offered at All UH Breast Health Centers

What is 3-D Mammography (Tomosynthesis)?

University Hospitals was the first healthcare provider in Northeast Ohio to offer tomosynthesis, a new technologically advanced screening tool that uses three-dimensional imaging to detect breast cancer.

Tomosynthesis takes images of the breast from multiple angles to provide clearer, more detailed views and helps radiologists to pinpoint the size, shape and location of abnormalities.

Tomosynthesis was shown to improve the rate of cancer detection and reduce the number of unnecessary call-backs in an article published in the Journal of the American Medical Association, June 2014. Experts believe that this method will soon become the gold standard in breast cancer screening and detection. Tomosynthesis is offered at multiple UH breast health centers across the region.

Each breast health center has also received the Breast Imaging Center of Excellence award and holds NAPBC accreditation.
