Bingham Memorial Hospital, a member of Bingham Healthcare, offers the Genius™ 3D Mammography™ exam.

Why Should I get a Genius™ 3D Mammographyexam?

The Genius™ exam provides better, earlier breast cancer detection compared to 2D alone. Greater accuracy means better breast cancer detection and a reduced chance of additional screenings. The Genius exam is proven to:

  • Provide better, earlier breast cancer detection.
  • Reduce unnecessary callbacks by up to 40%.
  • Find an average, 20-65% more invasive cancers than conventional mammography alone.

What should I expect during my Genius™ 3D Mammography™ exam?

The process of Genius™ exam is the same as conventional 2D exam. The technologist will position you, compress your breast, and take images from different angles. There’s no additional compression required with the Genius exam, it only takes a few extra seconds for an exam proven to be more accurate.

Who can have a Genius™ 3D Mammography™ exam?

The Genius exam is more accurate for women of all ages, with both dense and non-dense breasts, and the Genius exam is the only mammogram FDA approved as superior for women with dense breasts.

What about radiation?

The Genius exam is comparable to a conventional 2D mammogram when using low dose software.

How does the Genius™ 3D Mammography™ exam work?

The Genius exam allows doctors to examine your breast tissues layer by layer. So, instead of viewing all of the complexities of your breast tissue in a flat image, as with conventional 2D mammography, fine details are more visible and no longer hidden by the tissue above or below.

A good analogy for the Genius exam is like thinking of the pages in a book. If you look down at the cover you cannot see all the pages—but when you open it up, you can go through the entire book page by page to see everything between covers.

The Genius exam consists of a 2D and 3D™ image set, where the 2D image can be either an acquired image or a 2D image generated from 3D™ image set.
