DuPage Medical Group expands 3-D mammography to Hinsdale
HINSDALE – DuPage Medical Group (DMG), is expanding its diagnostic imaging services by offering 3-D mammography, also known as breast tomosynthesis, at its new Hinsdale location, 40 South Clay St., beginning this week.
Tomosynthesis, or 3-D mammography, allows radiologists to better identify individual breast structures, according to a news release. Using 3-D mammography, radiologists can scroll through layers of the breast in one-millimeter increments, rather than viewing all layers of tissue superimposed.
This layer-by-layer approach removes overlapping breast tissue, which can hide lesions and allows radiologists to view a mammogram in a way never before possible.
The 3-D mammography process is similar to the traditional mammogram procedure. Lasting just seconds longer than 2-D digital mammograms, this technology allows radiologists to more clearly identify structures in the breast.
