Digital & 3D Mammography

With C.A.D. Software


Our digital mammography combined with CAD (Computer Aided Detection) software is an effective process for detecting breast cancer.  We also offer 3D mammograms at our new National Harbor location.  

 

Screening Digital Mammography is for women who have no signs or symptoms that suggest breast cancer. It is the routine annual examination, in which two views of each breast are acquired.


Diagnostic Digital Mammography is used for patients with breast symptoms, a personal history of breast cancer, or another indication of cancer, or who have breast implants. Additional exams, such as a breast ultrasound, may be performed to aid in diagnosis.
