3D Mammography at Milford Regional

Recognizing that accurate, early detection of breast cancer is so important for successful treatment, Milford Regional has recently invested in advanced technology in mammography. 3D mammography, also known as tomosynthesis, is a new screening and diagnostic tool that creates a 3D image of your breast tissue in one millimeter slices, providing greater visibility for the radiologist to see breast detail in a way never before possible.

Milford Regional has been performing digital mammograms for years but with the addition of tomosynthesis and brand new, upgraded digital equipment, we are able to provide the radiologist with much better visibility of breast tissue. The result is greater accuracy in finding breast cancer at its earliest stage as well as reducing call backs for another test when the radiologist wants a second look.

The American Cancer Society recommends a screening mammography every year for women, beginning at age 40. In addition, women who have had breast cancer or who are at increased risk due to a genetic history of breast cancer should speak to their doctor about beginning screening mammography before age 40.

With convenient early morning, evening and weekend hours at Milford Regional, mammograms can be scheduled to fit your schedule.  To schedule an appointment, call our Diagnostic Imaging Scheduling Center at 508-422-BOOK (508-422-2665) Monday through Friday, 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.  For more information see our mammography page.
