For patients with dense breast tissue, 3D mammography can provide a clearer, more accurate picture and aid in detecting potential abnormalities.

Mammograms continue to be the best line of defense for early breast cancer screening.

In an ongoing effort to provide the best in advanced technology for the early detection and treatment of breast cancer, Kettering Health Network’s Fort Hamilton Hospital now offers its patients 3D mammography. 

Unlike traditional 2D or film mammograms that can obscure the detection of some cancers due to compressing and overlapping breast tissue (overlapped breast tissue can sometimes appear as a lump), 3D mammograms can give doctors a clearer, more accurate picture of breast tissue and potential abnormalities.
