The process of a Hologic Genius™ 3D Mammography™ exam is the same as your conventional 2D exam. The technologist will position you, compress your breast, and
take images from different angles. For an exam proven to be more accurate, there’s no additional compression required with the Genius™ exam. The technologist will view the images of your breasts at the computer workstation to ensure quality images have been captured for review. A radiologist will then examine the images and report results to either your physician or directly to you.
From the patient’s point of view, very little is different during the actual procedure of a 3D mammogram compared to a 2D mammogram. Most woman will have the opportunity to use the curved paddles designed for patient comfort and experience a similar scan time, but the main difference lies in the superior imaging.
