3D breast imaging on the Sunshine Coast
NOOSA Radiology offers 3D mammography examinations to women living on the Sunshine Coast.
This newer technology produces a three-dimensional view of breast tissue, shown in clinical studies to be significantly superior to traditional 2D mammography.
3D mammography enables radiologists to identify and characterise individual breast structures without the confusion of overlapping tissue, which can result in false positive findings with traditional 2D mammography. Research shows up to 40% more women will be spared the anxiety of being called back for further testing with 3D mammography.,
"We believe 3D mammography will benefit all patients in our breast program.
"The advantage of the latest 3D technology is the dose savings for our patients compared with previous generation 3D machines," says Dr McMenamin.
Noosa Radiology's Women's Imaging Department integrates the use of 3D mammography, breast ultrasound, breast MRI and interventional procedures offering a complete range of breast imaging services.
