St. Anthony Community Hospital, a member of the Westchester Medical Center Health Network (WMCHealth), is now offering Genius™ 3D MAMMOGRAPHY™ exams. Utilizing advanced breast tomosynthesis technology, 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.

“The system allows our radiologists to more effectively pinpoint the size, shape and location of abnormalities,” said Robert Yates, system director, Imaging Services.

In conventional 2D mammography, overlapping dense breast tissue is a common reason why breast cancers may be missed and normal tissue may appear abnormal, leading to unnecessary callbacks. The 3D exam utilizes a rotating digital scanner to capture images of the tissue from multiple angles.  These enhanced images greatly reduce the tissue overlap effect.  Radiologists and technologists can move and enlarge the images to view any area of concern.

This technology is considered superior to conventional digital mammography and is approved by the FDA. The new system is recommended for women of all ages and breast densities.

Large clinical studies in the U.S. and Europe have demonstrated the positive benefits of a Genius 3D MAMMOGRAPHY™ exam. Findings include:

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

This upgrade is included in Phase One of the $10 million renovation of the St. Anthony Community Hospital’s Radiology Department.  Women’s imaging services, including 3D mammography, are offered at St. Anthony Community Hospital’s offsite imaging facility located on 55 Ronald Reagan Boulevard in Warwick.
