Researchers Investigate 3D Mammography Cost-Effectiveness

Early research has shown that 3D mammography can improve breast cancer detection rates and reduce false-positive rates. In women with dense breast tissue, which can mask cancers on conventional mammography, 3D mammography is emerging as a valuable supplemental screening tool.

Is 3D Mammography Cost Effective?

Recent research published in Radiology concluded that 3D mammography is a cost-effective way to screen for cancer in women with dense breast tissue. Using data collected from the National Cancer Institute and Medicare, researchers from the University of Washington and the Seattle Cancer Care Alliance attempted to calculate the cost per quality-adjusted life year (QALY) added when 3D mammography was performed in […]

3D Mammography Improves Breast Cancer Detection Rates

3D mammography outperforms conventional mammography in cancer detection and recall rates.

Breast Tomosynthesis | 3d mammography orange county, CaliforniaRecent research published June 2014 in the Journal of the American Medical Association reflects the potential for 3D mammography (digital breast tomosynthesis) to improve breast cancer screening. This is the latest study to shine positive light on 3D mammography, or digital breast tomosynthesis, a relatively new technology that can create detailed, three-dimensional visual representations of breast tissue. Researchers determined that, combined with conventional mammography, 3D mammography was able to reduce recall rates and improve breast cancer detection.

Can 3D Mammography Make Breast Cancer Screening More Accurate?

Study suggests 3D digital mammography used in combination with traditional screening mammography significantly reduces recall rates.

Since mammography was introduced in the late 1960s, it has been one of the most valuable tools available to women and their physicians in the fight against breast cancer. From 1990 to 2009, as screening mammography rates approximately doubled, the breast cancer mortality rate dropped by one-third. Mammography saves lives.

However, while capable of detecting most breast cancers while they are still small and curable, traditional mammography has its limitations. At West Coast Radiology Center, we are constantly on the lookout for ways to make breast cancer screening more effective — and 3D mammography, or breast […]
