Mammography 3D

Utilizing cutting-edge technology, this technique captures a series of thin cross-sectional images, enabling a three-dimensional reconstruction of breast tissue. By eliminating the superimposition of structures that can obscure abnormalities, it enhances the detection of subtle lesions, calcifications, and early signs of breast cancer.

It is highly recommended to undergo both ultrasound and mammography for greater accuracy and detection of breast cancer in women.


What are the Benefits of 3D Mammography?

  • Enhances the accuracy of breast cancer detection, particularly in cases of dense breast tissue.
  • Detect cancers at smaller sizes and earlier stages, increasing the likelihood of less invasive treatment options and improved outcomes.
  • Reduces false positives by providing more precise information about potential abnormalities, leading to fewer unnecessary follow-up tests.
  • Captures multiple images of the breast from different angles and helps uncover these hidden cancers, improving overall detection rates.
  • Beneficial for women with dense breast tissue, who are at a higher risk of breast cancer. 
  • Targeting the precise area, improving the accuracy of the procedure.
  • Timely interventions and treatments, potentially saving lives.


Frequently Asked Questions about Mammography

3D Mammography, also known as digital breast tomosynthesis, is an advanced imaging technique used for breast cancer screening. It creates a series of 3D images of the breast tissue, providing a more detailed view compared to traditional 2D mammography.

Mammography uses X-rays to create images of the breast’s internal structures, while Breast Ultrasound uses sound waves to assess what kind of masses there are, whether fluid-filled or solid.

Yes, 3D mammography is considered safe. The radiation exposure during a 3D mammogram is still very low and within acceptable limits. The benefits of accurate cancer detection generally outweigh the minimal risks associated with radiation exposure.

3D mammography is suitable for most women undergoing routine breast cancer screening. However, individual factors such as breast size, density, and medical history can affect the choice of screening method. It’s recommended to consult with your healthcare provider to determine the best screening approach for your specific situation.

Both procedures involve compressing the breasts to spread out the breast tissues to have a clearer image.  Improvements in technology, particularly with the added Comfort Compression (CCOMP) that is unique to the 3D mammography used in Shinagawa, significantly lessens the discomfort.

The recommended frequency of mammograms varies based on factors like age, risk factors, and personal medical history. In general, established guidelines  followed by  local and international societies,  recommend starting regular mammograms at age  40 and continuing every 1 to 2 years. It’s best to consult with your healthcare provider to determine the appropriate screening schedule for you.
