About 3D Mammography
The best way to fight breast cancer is to find it early. Now, women seeking mammograms at Excela Health benefit from enhanced capabilities that reduce the time from screening to detection and treatment with digital breast tomosynthesis (DBT) more commonly known as 3D mammography. This technology is approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration and available at Excela Health, the first in the region to perform screening mammograms on every woman with 3D technology, which is finding cancer sooner.
Clinical research has shown that 3D mammography improves the visualization of cancers significantly, particularly in females with dense breast tissue and can detect up to 40 percent more early cancers than conventional mammography. Excela Health offers 3D screening mammography in four locations - Frick Hospital (Mount Pleasant), Latrobe Hospital (Latrobe), Westmoreland Hospital (Greensburg) and Excela Square at Norwin (North Huntingdon).
