The Briner Imaging Center at Tahoe Forest Hospital offers the highest resolution 3D mammography available. Recently it has made advancements to its 3D Mammography™ exams with the addition of the Genius AI™ Detection technology. Using advanced breast tomosynthesis technology, Genius AI™ exams significantly increase the detection of breast cancers, while simultaneously decreasing the number of women asked to return for additional testing.
The Genius AI™ Detection technology is the latest breakthrough in breast cancer detection, improving accuracy as it works to identify lesions that indicate potential cancer more thoroughly and quicker. 3D Mammography™ exams with this enhanced detection technology offer superior performance in locating suspicious areas in complex conditions, such as dense breast tissue, in breast images. Key clinical insights like this helps catch breast cancer early.
With the aid of the Genius AI™ Detection technology, doctors can accurately detect irregularities and quickly determine the best course of action for the patient.
- The Genius AI™ 3D Mammography™ exam is the only mammogram FDA approved as superior for women with dense breasts compared to 2D mammography alone.
