Genius™ 3D™ Mammogram

Stevens Community Medical Center provides both 2D and 3D mammography options.

The Genius 3Dexam 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 2D mammography, fine details are more visible and no longer hidden by tissue above or below.

So, why choose the Genius™ Exam? 

  • Better, earlier detection. FDA approved for women with dense breasts
  • More accurate. This type of exam provides better, earlier breast cancer detection compared to 2D and it finds 20-65% more invasive breast cancers than 2D mammography alone. 
  • Greater peace of mind. It is proven to reduce unnecessary callbacks by up to 40% compared to 2D alone.
  • Doctors are able to screen for breast cancer with greater accuracy— which means better breast cancer detection and a reduced chance of being called back for additional imaging.

Reasons to get screened:

  • 1 in 8 women will develop breast cancer in her lifetime.
  • 8 out of 9 women diagnosed with breast cancer have no family history
  • With early detection, the five-year survival rate is almost 100%
