Why Legacy offers 3-D mammography to all patients
3-D mammography reveals more, so more cancers are caught. Also, more cancers are found earlier when treatment is most successful.
The largest study to date on the effectiveness of 3-D mammography found that 3-D:
- Finds 41% more invasive breast cancers
- Finds 29% more breast cancers of all types
- Results in 15% fewer false alarms
