The Breast Imaging Center at Phelps offers two different kinds of mammograms to help catch breast cancer early. We use digital mammogram technology that produces clear, sharp images and can zoom in to find small changes that may be cancerous. We also use Computer Aided Detection (CAD) software. It works as a second set of eyes to help our radiologists when making a diagnosis.
Our mammogram techs strive to make your experience a positive one. While some women may find the exam somewhat uncomfortable, our advanced, digital mammogram systems generally use less pressure than older machines. Each image takes only a few seconds to obtain.
Phelps offers two types of mammograms:
- A 2D mammogram creates a flat, or two-dimensional, image of the breast. Phelps offers 2D mammograms at the Breast Imaging Center and at all radiology department locations.
- 3D mammograms, or breast tomosynthesis, convert digital breast images into thin slices. These slices are stacked together digitally to make up a 3-dimensional model of the breast. Some experts believe this type of mammogram is more accurate and may find cancer earlier than a 2D mammogram. 3D mammograms are performed the same way as 2D mammograms.
Many insurance plans now cover 3D mammograms. Please check with your insurance provider. We offer 3D mammograms at the Breast Imaging Center, as well as at Phelps Radiology in Croton-on-Hudson and Phelps Radiology in Dobbs Ferry.
Phelps also offers stereotactic biopsy, ultrasound-guided core biopsy, needle localization, ultrasound-guided fine needle aspiration (FNA), breast ultrasound, Breast MRI and MRI-guided breast biopsy.
