Benefits and Risks- Breast Tomosynthesis (3D)

Benefits

  • Breast Tomosynthesis (3D) exams provide a way for SMIL radiologists to view breast abnormalities from all angles to help diagnose problems.
  • When cancers are small, the woman has more treatment options and a cure is more likely.

Risks

  • There are risks associated with any exposure to radiation. However, the benefits outweigh the risk when mammography is done accurately using the lowest possible dose.
  • Breast Tomosynthesis (3D) is not recommended for women who are pregnant or could possibly be pregnant.

Everyone at SMIL is very professional. They are kind, courteous and are just overall nice! I had a really bad experience at another imaging center and they put my mind at ease as soon as I came in the door.
