Low Dose Genius 3D Mammography Services


Same Day Reads for Screening Mammograms Available

For screening mammography patients, the Dorothy Mangurian Comprehensive Women's Center offers same day reads. When additional imaging is required, our team will work together to get additional orders and the authorization (if required) to perform the additional studies the same day. In addition, Saturday appointments are available for your convenience.

3D Mammography(TM) Examinations 
New low dose 3D™ exams are a more accurate breast cancer exam and are superior to conventional digital mammograms 

We are excited to offer Low Dose Genius™ 3D MAMMOGRAPHY™ Exams at the Dorothy Mangurian Comprehensive Women’s Center (also available at Holy Cross Urgent Care and Imaging Centers in East Boca Raton and West Boca Raton). 

Holy Cross Hospital is the only eastern Broward County hospital offering Low Dose Genius™ 3D MAMMOGRAPHY™ exams from Hologic, a global leader in breast cancer detection. In a conventional mammogram, overlapping tissue can hide breast cancers and normal breast tissue may appear abnormal, leading to unnecessary callbacks. Low Dose Genius 3D MAMMOGRAPHY™ exams are an advanced type of digital mammogram that offer better cancer detection, fewer call backs, minimal compression time and greater peace of mind at a dose comparable to a conventional digital mammogram.*

Large clinical studies in the U.S. and Europe* have demonstrated the positive benefits of Low Dose 3D MAMMOGRAPHY™ exams including:

•             Earlier detection of small breast cancers that may be hidden in a conventional mammogram

•             Greater accuracy in pinpointing size, shape and location of abnormalities

•             Fewer unnecessary biopsies or additional tests

•             Greater likelihood of detecting multiple breast tumors

•             Clearer images of dense breast tissue

•             Maintained 3D MAMMOGRAPHY™ exam performance, at a 2D-like dose

Low Dose Genius 3D MAMMOGRAPHY™ exams are recommended for women of all ages and breast densities.

Holy Cross Hospital is committed to the fight against breast cancer. In offering the Genius low dose 3D MAMMOGRAPHY™ exams, Holy Cross provides the latest and most effective imaging tool for breast cancer screening.

To schedule an exam, please call 954-202-0277.

 

About Low Dose Genius™ 3D MAMMOGRAPHY™ Exams

Breast tissue and structures in the breast can overlap and cause confusion when viewed with a conventional mammogram. Low Dose Genius™ 3D MAMMOGRAPHY™ exams enable doctors to more clearly see through overlapping tissue to detect cancers, often at an earlier stage.

While Low Dose Genius 3D MAMMOGRAPHY™ exams include a conventional digital mammogram for use during image review, they do not require an X-ray exposure to generate the conventional 2D image, as C-View™ software generates the 2D image from the 3D™ information.

Low Dose Genius 3D MAMMOGRAPHY™ exams are only available on the Hologic Selenia® Dimensions® breast tomosynthesis system.

*For example see the following studies on the benefits of low dose 3D MAMMOGRAPHY™ exams:

Digital Mammography

The Dorothy Mangurian Comprehensive Women’s Center at Holy Cross HealthPlex offers digital mammography services in Fort Lauderdale. Mammography is an X-ray that provides the sharpest images available of the breast's inner structure. The advanced screening capability of a mammogram greatly improves survival of women because it detects much smaller tumors than those that can be felt by women themselves or by the most experienced physicians. Early detection is key in fighting cancer before it can spread to other parts of the body.

Our patients can rest assured that they are receiving high quality and compassionate care from one of the best hospitals in Broward County. Holy Cross HealthPlex has been designated as a Breast Imaging Center of Excellence by the American College of Radiology (ACR). The ACR recognizes breast imaging centers that have earned accreditation in mammography, stereotactic breast biopsy, breast MRI and breast ultrasound (including ultrasound-guided breast biopsy).

Mammography patients who are new to Holy Cross will have added peace of mind by having their prior films digitized when they arrive for their mammogram so that our radiologists may view them in our PACS system for comparison and retention. By digitizing films, patients can leave with their original films, which most patients find comforting.

Digital mammography is your strongest new ally in the fight against breast cancer. Digital images appear in seconds on a computer screen, revealing an exciting new world of diagnostic possibilities.

Every day we learn more about breast cancer and how to win the battle. One fact is very clear-the distinct advantage of early detection. Fortunately, breast cancer is highly detectable through digital mammography screening.

Why are mammograms important?

If breast cancer is detected early, before it spreads, 98 percent of the women will be alive five years later. The earlier it's discovered, the earlier it's treated and the better the chance of survival. Mammography is also of value because it shows other changes in breast tissue, and the mammogram can be referred to later for comparison.
