Frequently Asked Questions

What should I expect during my Genius 3D Mammography exam?

The process of a Genius 3D exam is the same as a conventional 2D exam. The technologist will position you, compress your breast, and take images from different angles. There's no additional compression required with the Genius exam, and it only takes a few extra seconds.

Who can have a Genius 3D Mammography exam?

The Genius exam is more accurate for women of all ages, with both dense and non-dense breasts, and the Genius exam is the only mammogram FDA approved as superior for women with dense breasts.

What about radiation?

The Genius exams are comparable to a conventional 2D mammogram when using low dose software.

How does the Genius 3D Mammography exam work?

The Genius 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 Genius 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.

Why should I get a Genius 3D Mammography exam? 

The Genius exam is proven to:

  • Provide better, earlier breast cancer detection
  • Reduce unnecessary callbacks by up to 40%
  • Find on average 20-65% more invasive cancers than conventional mammography alone
