Using advanced breast tomosynthesis technology, Genius exams significantly increase the detection of breast cancers, while simultaneously decreasing the number of women asked to return for additional testing.
The Hologic system is recommended for women of all ages and breast densities. The system allows radiologists to more effectively pinpoint the size, shape and location of abnormalities. This leads to better detection and greater peace of mind for patients.
- The Geniusâ„˘ 3D Mammographyâ„˘ exam is the only mammogram FDA approved as superior for women with dense breasts compared to 2D mammography alone.
- The Geniusâ„˘ 3D Mammographyâ„˘ exam finds 20-65% more invasive breast cancers than 2D alone.
- Studies show that Geniusâ„˘ 3D Mammographyâ„˘ exams reduce callbacks by up to 40%.
