Advanced 3D Mammography

FirstLight now offers the DIMENSIONS™ 3D MAMMOGRAPHY™ Exams

In 2014 alone, more than 200,000 women were diagnosed with an invasive form of breast cancer. That’s why innovative screening technology that allows for better, earlier breast cancer detection is critical.

  • 1 in every 8 women will develop breast cancer within her lifetime.
  • 8 out of 9 women diagnosed with breast cancer have no family history.
  • Breast cancer risk increases with age—2 out of 3 invasive breast cancers are found in women over 55.

Why choose a 3D screening?

  1. Earlier Detection
    Only mammogram proven to detect breast cancer 15 months earlier.
  2. Greater Peace of Mind
    Reduces unnecessary callbacks by up to 40%.
  3. More Accurate
    Finds 41% more invasive cancers than conventional mammograms alone.

Frequently Asked Questions

  • Why should I get a Dimensions 3D Mammography exam?
    The Dimensions 3D Mammography exam is a more accurate procedure in the fight against breast cancer. Greater accuracy means better breast cancer detection and a reduced chance of additional screenings.
  • What should I expect during my Dimensions 3D Mammography exam?
    The process of a Dimensions 3D Mammography exam is the same as a conventional 2D exam, only the results are more accurate. The technologist will position you, compress your breast, and take images from different angles. There’s no additional compression required with the Dimensions exam, and
    it only takes a few extra seconds.
  • Who can have a Dimensions 3D Mammography exam?
    Dimensions exams are a more accurate exam for women of all ages, with both dense and non-dense breasts.
  • What about radiation?
    With the latest low dose software, a Dimensions 3D Mammography exam delivers a low dose of radiation, well within FDA guidelines, that is comparable to a 2D mammogram.
  • How does the Dimensions 3D Mammography exam work?
    The Dimensions 3D Mammography exam allows doctors to examine your breast tissue layer by layer. So, instead of viewing all of the complexities of your breast tissue in a flat image, as with conventional 2D mammography, fine details are more visible and no longer hidden by the tissue above or below. A good analogy for the Dimensions exam 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.
