A more accurate way to screen for breast cancer..

Conventional 2D mammograms provide doctors with a 2D image to evaluate the breast. This can be limiting due to overlapping layers of tissue, which can sometimes produce unclear results, false alarms, or worse–cancer being missed.

Our 3D exams deliver a series of detailed breast images, allowing your doctor to better evaluate your breasts layer by layer, and over 100 clinical studies support the benefits of this technology. Studies show that 3D Mammography has greater accuracy than 2D mammography for women across a variety of ages and breast densities.

  • Detects significantly more breast cancer compared to 2D mammography alone.

    For some women, this could mean an earlier diagnosis.

  • Reduces callbacks by up to 40% compared to 2D mammography alone.

    For many women, this means being spared the emotional, practical, and economic toll of additional testing, including biopsies, when there could be nothing wrong.

  • Provides greater accuracy for women across a variety of ages and breast densities.

    Any woman who is due to have a traditional mammogram can elect to have a 3D exam. They are covered and paid for by Medicare, as well as a growing number of private insurers.

How Does IT Work?

The Genius 3D mammography exam is very similar to having a traditional 2D mammogram. Like a 2D mammogram, the technologist will position you, compress your breast, and take images from different angles.

During the Genius 3D mammogram, the X-ray arm sweeps in an arc over the breast, taking multiple breast images in just seconds.

There’s no additional compression required..

..and it only takes a few seconds longer. The technologist will review the images of your breasts at the computer workstation to ensure quality images have been captured for review.

A radiologist will then examine the images and report results to either your doctor or directly to you.​

Genius 3D mammography™ allows doctors to examine your breast tissue layer by layer. So, instead of viewing all of the complexities of your breast tissue in a flat image, as with traditional 2Dmammography, fine details are more visible and significantly less likely to be hidden by the tissue above or below.

Genius 3D mammography is clinically proven to detect 41% more invasive breast cancers and reduce the need for further testing by 15-40% compared with traditional 2D mammography alone.


In 2014 alone, more than 200,000 women were diagnosed with an invasive form of breast cancer. That’s why innovative screening technology that allows for better, earlier breast cancer detection is critical.

EMU Health has been awarded

a three-year term of accreditation in mammography as the result of a recent review by the American College of Radiology (ACR). Mammography is a specific type of imaging test that uses a low-dose X-ray system to examine breasts. A mammography exam, called a mammogram, is used to aid in the early detection and diagnosis of breast diseases in women.
