3D Mammography

Call for more information: 770-219-7666

3D mammography is now available in Barrow, Braselton, Gainesville and Dawsonville.

While traditional mammograms give radiologists a flat, two-dimensional image, 3D mammography (digital tomosynthesis) creates a 3D image using many layers of the breast, so fine details are more visible and no longer hidden by tissue above or below. This means radiologists have to do fewer call-backs for repeat exams because what appeared to be questionable in a traditional image may be very clear in a 3D image.

"Early results with digital 3D mammography are promising. We are already experiencing a reduction in call-backs, unnecessary biopsies and additional tests for our patients."
- Julie Pardue Presley, MD, of Gainesville Radiology Group and medical director of Women’s Imaging at NGMC
