North Valley Health Center now offers 3-D Mammograms!
3-D Mammograms, also called tomosynthesisuse, the same X-ray technology and method as a 2-D Mammogram but there are some differences. With 2-D Mammograms images are only taken from the front and side and the advanced 3-D imaging takes many pictures from several angles. A computer then produces a 3-D image that can be sliced and scrolled through, like pages in a book. This means that the radiologist can examine your breast tissue layer by layer and makes it easier to find potentially worrisome abnormalities.
