3D Mammography

Women who undergo routine mammograms at Summit Medical Center have the latest screening and diagnostic technology available to them with 3D breast tomosynthesis with Selenia® Dimensions® digital mammography system. Selenia Dimensions is the latest generation of mammography equipment from Hologic, the women's healthcare company, the world leader in breast cancer diagnosis and treatment.

The Selenia Dimensions system offers exceptionally sharp breast images, an advanced ergonomic design providing more patient comfort, and a ground-breaking 3D tomosynthesis platform designed to deliver superior screening and diagnostic performance.

Breast tomosynthesis is a revolutionary technology that gives radiologists the ability to identify and characterize individual breast structures without the confusion of overlapping tissue. During a breast tomosynthesis exam, multiple, low-dose images of the breast are acquired at different angles. These images are then used to produce a series of one-millimeter thick slices that can be viewed as a 3D reconstruction of the breast.
