New 3-D Mammography Saves Lives

The Lexington Medical Center Foundation is launching a three-year, $3 million capital campaign to bring 3-D mammography to every patient at Lexington Medical Center. This revolutionary, new technology helps detect breast cancer earlier and more accurately than traditional 2-D mammography.

The Most Advanced Technology Available

Currently, Lexington Medical Center offers 3-D mammography at two of its nine imaging locations. Once the Foundation reaches its goal, 3-D mammography will be available throughout the hospital’s network of care, including on its mobile mammography unit. The mobile mammography van travels to rural communities throughout the hospital’s service area, giving patients access to the most advanced technology available, regardless of where they live.

3-D mammography can detect 40% more cancers than 2-D mammography.

3-D Mammography Offers Clear Advantages

  • Detects lesions as small as 2mm
  • Can detect 40 percent more cancers than 2-D mammography
  • Reduces patient callbacks by 15 percent
  • Offers 29 percent improvement in overall cancer detection rates
  • Reduces false positives up to 40 percent
  • Allows radiologists to see masses and distortions associated with cancers significantly more clearly than conventional 2-D
  • Reduces the need for additional imaging in order to better visualize tissue up to 40 percent, compared to 2-D mammography
