This 3D mammography equipment aids in the early detection of breast cancer by providing multiple images of breast tissue slices, giving a clearer picture within the dense breast tissue.

In 2016, 114 cases of breast cancer were detected at Thomas Hospital. With the help of 3D mammography, 20 - 65 percent more invasive breast cancers are detected, breast cancer can be detected earlier, callbacks are reduced by up to 40%, and there is greater accuracy for women across a variety of ages and breast densities.
