Mammogram

Timely mammograms can be a powerful tool to help guard against the dangers of breast cancer. Mammograms can spot breast cancer long before it causes symptoms. Early detection allows for a better chance at effective treatment. 

Technology Meets Technique

At Saint Francis Hospital-Bartlett and the Saint Francis Hospital-Bartlett Imaging Center, our trained technologists use 3D mammography to capture and manipulate images. Utilizing advanced breast tomosynthesis technology, Genius 3D exams are clinically proven to significantly increase the detection of breast cancers, while simultaneously decreasing the number of women asked to return for additional testing.

In conventional 2D mammography, overlapping tissue is a leading reason why small breast cancers may be missed and normal tissue may appear abnormal, leading to unnecessary callbacks. A Genius exam includes a three-dimensional method of imaging that can greatly reduce the tissue overlap effect.

Large clinical studies in the U.S. and Europe have demonstrated the positive benefits of a Genius 3D Mammography™ exam. The largest study to date on breast cancer screening using the Genius exam was published in the June 25, 2014 issue of the Journal of the American Medical Association (JAMA). Findings include:

  • A 41% increase in the detection of invasive breast cancers.
  • A 29% increase in the detection of all breast cancers.
  • A 15% decrease in women recalled for additional imaging.

Women 40 years of age and older do not need a physician referral or order to schedule their annual screening mammogram. While many insurance providers are covering

3D mammograms, please check with your provider prior to your exam to see if your 3D exam is covered or if there will be an additional out-of-pocket cost.

Schedule a Mammogram

Mammograms are the most effective form of early detection for breast cancer. Because one in eight U.S. women will have a breast cancer diagnosis at some point in life, it’s especially important to make time for your mammogram.
