TYLER – The CHRISTUS Trinity Mother Frances Ross Breast Center has announced it is now the first health care organization in Northeast Texas offering patients the Hologic® 3D Mammography System and the Genius® 3D Mammography Exam. The equipment gives providers the ability to detect up to 65%more invasive breast cancer. Conventional 2D mammograms provide doctors with a 2D image to evaluate the breast. This can be limiting due to overlapping layers of tissue, which can sometimes produce unclear results or false alarms. Genius exams deliver a series of detailed breast images, allowing physicians to better evaluate patients’ breasts layer by layer. According to the hospital, studies show that the Genius 3D Mammography exam has greater accuracy than 2D mammography for women across a variety of ages and breast densities, and it is the only mammogram FDA-approved as superior for women with dense breasts.
