Digital Mammography: 2D and 3D

ACR Mammography OSF Saint Anthony Medical Center offers 2D and 3D digital mammography. Mammography can detect breast cancer at an early stage, when treatment is more effective and a cure is more likely.

Advances in mammography, including the invention of FDA-approved digital mammography, can be credited with detecting 80 to 90 percent of breast cancers in women without symptoms. 

Our 3D mammography services, when combined with a conventional 2D mammography, results in earlier cancer detection than conventional 2D mammography alone.

Who Should Get a Mammogram?

The American Cancer Society's recommendations for early breast cancer detection are:

  • Women age 40 and older should have a screening mammogram every year and should continue to do so for as long as they are in good health.
  • Women in their 20s and 30s should have a clinical breast exam (CBE) as part of a periodic (regular) health exam by a health professional, preferably every three years. After age 40, women should have a breast exam by a health professional every year.
  • Breast self exam (BSE) is an option for women starting in their 20s. Women should report any breast changes to their health professional right away.
