3D Compared to 2D
The Genius™ Exam and Breast Density
How a 3D Mammogram™ Works

The Genius™ 3D Mammography™ exam results are more accurate than conventional 2D mammograms, detecting 20-65% more invasive breast cancers. The Genius™ exam also provides greater peace of mind by reducing the chance of unnecessary callbacks. In fact, the Genius™ exam reduces callbacks by up to 40% compared to 2D alone.

Dense breast tissue can make it difficult for doctors to detect breast cancer during annual screenings, which is concerning since women with dense breasts are more likely to develop breast cancer. Studies show that the Genius™ 3D Mammography™ exam has greater accuracy than 2D mammography for women across a variety of ages and breast densities. It is the only mammogram that is FDA approved as superior for women with dense breasts compared to 2D alone. This is good news for patients, as nearly fifty percent of women between the ages of 40 and 74 have dense breasts.

Women will notice little difference between a conventional 2D mammogram and a 3D Mammogram procedure mammogram™. 

The exam takes about the same amount of time and the positioning is the same. The real difference is in the information available to the doctor. A good analogy for 3D Mammography™ is like thinking of the pages in a book. If you look down at the cover you cannot see all of the pages – but when you open it up, you can go through the entire book page-by-page to see everything between the covers.
