3-D Mammography (Tomosynthesis)
Centegra Gavers Breast Center offers the only 3-D mammogram technology in McHenry County. Ideal for women with dense breasts, 3-D mammograms capture multiple images (slices) of the breast at different angles, allowing radiologists to examine each one-millimeter slice at a time and provide a 3-D reconstruction. This enhanced view provides you greater peace of mind.
What to Expect from a 3-D
The 3-D mammography complements standard 2-D mammography and is performed at the same time with the same system. There is no additional compression required and it only takes a few seconds longer for each view. Benefits of tomosynthesis at Centegra include:
- Shorter screening time: Your breast image is immediately captured on high-resolution computer monitors so the technologist can ensure each image shows the right view before positioning you for the next scan. The entire procedure should take about 20 minutes.
- Timely results: A radiologist will read your mammogram and results will be sent to your physician within 24 hours.
- 3-D mammography insurance reimbursement
- If your insurance does not cover 3-D mammograms, you can still experience this enhanced technology for an out-of-pocket fee of $75.00. Currently Medicare and BC BS something something (when indicated).
