A New Dimension in Women's Health

3D Tomosynthesis: The new way to detect breast cancer

Mammography is a specific type of imaging using a low-dose x-ray system for examination of the breasts. Pullman Regional Hospital offers the most advanced technology with digital mammography. Digital mammography is 25 percent more effective at detecting abnormalities in women with dense breasts than conventional mammography. While other diagnostic tests are sometimes necessary, the mammogram is the first line of defense against breast cancer.

ACR Means Responsible Imaging

Our mammography program is accredited by the ACR, meaning we promise the best images using the lowest dosage of radiation. We have been designated a Breast Imaging Center of Excellence by the ACR which recognizes breast imaging centers that have earned accreditation in Mammography, Breast MRI, Stereotactic Breast Biopsy, Breast Ultrasound, CT, Nuclear Medicine, Ultrasound, MRI. View our awards & accreditations

See how 3-D mammography, also called tomosynthesis, complements standard 2-D mammography when it’s performed at the same time with the same system. There is no additional compression required and it only takes a few seconds longer for each view.  During the 3D part of the exam, the x-ray arm sweeps in a slight arc over the breast, taking multiple breast images. Then a computer produces a 3D image of your breast tissue on one millimeter slices, providing greater visibility for the radiologist to see breast detail in a way never before possible. The radiologist can scroll through image slices of your entire breast like the pages of a book.
