See the difference with the Genius™ 3D MAMMOGRAPHY™ exam

Superior breast cancer screening technology1-6

The Genius 3D Mammography exam is acquired on the Hologic® 3D Mammography system and consists of a 2D and 3D image set, where the 2D image can be either an acquired 2D image or a 2D image generated from the 3D image set. The Genius exam is only available on the Hologic® 3D Mammography system.1


Speed of image acquisition7†

Less than 4 second scan time (fastest 3D scan available) designed to minimize compression time, and the potential for motion artifact.

Benefits of Genius™ 3D MAMMOGRAPHY™ exams


With 2D

Lesion obscured due to superimposition on 2D mammography


With Genius exam

Genius exams minimize the effects of overlap by allowing visualization of tissue within the breast

The Hologic® 3D Mammography system, with its advanced software capabilities, can generate both digital breast tomosynthesis images and a composite digital 2D image, all from one breast compression.4-6


Radiation Exposure8†

Well within MQSA limit of 3.0 mGy and comparable to a conventional 2D mammogram when using low dose software.

Clinically proven results

Numerous clinical studies have demonstrated that with a Genius exam, Radiologists are able to more accurately screen, triage to biopsy, or dismiss a potential false positive—for women across a variety of ages and breast densities.1-3,7

Proven in both research and clinical use

  • Over 750,000 patients evaluated in clinical studies
  • Over 100 peer-reviewed publications
  • Over 3,000 systems in all 50 states
  • Over 10 million women screened in the US since 2011

Seeing really is believing

Review the case studies below to see the superior imaging of a Genius exam:1-6

Case #1: Recall Reduction

Lesion suspected in 2D evaluation that is shown in Genius exam to be superimposed tissue.8


Case #2: Improved Detection

2D evaluation prompts no suspicion; Genius exam evaluation reveals suspicious lesion found to be cancer.8
