North Valley Health Center, along with DMS Health Technologies, will be offering 3D Mammograms to all patients starting December 26, 2019
Digital Breast Tomosynthesis (3D mammography) combines low dose mammogram images from different angles around the breast to create a 3D image of the breast. These images can be analyzed as a whole, or examined in small sections for greater detail.
Benefits of 3D mammography:
- Reduces the need for follow up imaging
- Detects more abnormalities than traditional mammography (2D)
- Reduces the number of false positives
- Improves breast cancer detection in dense breast tissue
DMS has the newest 3D mammogram technology from GE, the Senographe Pristina. This Digital Breast Tomosynthesis system offers the lowest patient radiation dose of all FDA approved 3D mammography systems.

3D mammography is approved by the U.S. FDA. It is covered by most insurance companies, but not all. It is your responsibility to check with your insurance company
