Mammoth Hospital is excited to offer Genius™ 3D Mammography exams, developed by Hologic, Inc., a worldwide leader in Women’s Health. Utilizing advanced breast tomosynthesis technology, Genius™ exams are clinically proven to significantly increase the detection of breast cancers, also decreasing the number of women asked to return for additional testing.
In conventional 2D mammography, overlapping tissue is a leading reason why small breast cancers may be missed and normal tissue may appear abnormal, leading to unnecessary callbacks. These exams include a three-dimensional method of imaging that can greatly reduce the tissue overlap effect. This new exam technology is revolutionizing how breast cancer is detected by providing a better option for women of all breast densities compared to 2D alone.

- 3D Mammography reduces callbacks by up to 40% compared to 2D alone.
