3-D Mammography

3-D Digital Breast Tomosynthesis

Breast tomosynthesis allows Mercy's physicians to examine breast tissue one layer at a time.  Meryc's breast tomosynthesis uses high-powered computing to convert digital breast images into a stack of very thin layers or “slices”—building what is essentially a three-dimensional mammogram.  A computer then produces a 3-D image of the breast tissue in one-millimeter layers.
