Breast Cancer Screening Request an Appointment
At Moncrief Cancer Institute, we provide a comfortable environment, convenient appointments, the latest technology and renowned UT Southwestern radiologists reading every scan. Our advanced technology includes state-of-the-art 3-D mammography, also known as digital breast tomosynthesis.
What is 3-D Mammography?
3-D mammography, considered the most advanced breast screening and diagnostic technology, captures multiple images of breast tissue and creates a 3-dimensional picture of the breast. The result is a clearer image and a more accurate test. According to a study in the Journal of American Medical Association, 3-D mammography detects 41 percent more invasive breast cancers than a standard 2-D mammogram and reduces the rate of false positives by up to 40 percent--leading to greater piece of mind with your results. The revolutionary technology is available at our Fort Worth location and on our Mobile Cancer Clinic.
