Each had a digital mammogram and a 3 D mammogram.
"Three dimensional mammography addresses the two major flaws of mammography," she says. One is the inability to see some cancers on a mammogram. The other is a need to call back women for what looks like abnormal tissue that isn't, she says.
At Massachusetts General, the 3 D mammograms are done at no additional charge, Rafferty says. Other institutions may charge $30 to $50 extra, Culley says.

More About 3 D ImagingRafferty says using 3 D is helpful for routine screening and for high risk women.

Some researchers are seeing better results by adding another form of testing, called three dimensional or 3 D breast imaging.
"This technology makes a big impact," says researcher Elizabeth A. Rafferty, MD, a radiologist and director of breast imaging at Massachusetts General Hospital in Boston.
The 3 D system captures multiple images from different angles around the breast. It helps give the radiologist clearer views through overlapping breast tissue.
The FDA approved the 3 D system in early 2011. It is now installed in more than 300 centers, according to Jim Culley, a spokesman for Hologic.
