Why choose a Genius™ 3D MAMMOGRAPHY™ exam?

Better, earlier breast cancer detection.1-7
A greatly reduced chance of callbacks.2,3

Clinical studies show what many doctors and hospitals already know—a Genius exam is a much better way to screen for breast cancer compared to 2D mammography.

What it does

Provides greater accuracy for women across a variety of ages and breast densities.1-7

What it means

Any woman who is due to have a conventional mammogram can elect to have a Genius exam. They are covered and paid for by Medicare, and most private insurers.

What it does

Scans faster for less time under compression.

What it means

For many women, compression during mammograms can be uncomfortable. In fact, studies show that 60% of women experienced discomfort and half were in pain during their last mammogram.19

That’s why the Genius exam was designed to provide better, earlier breast cancer detection,1-6,18 while keeping the time under compression as short as possible. The Genius exam offers the fastest available mammography scan time, limiting the time under compression to less than 4 seconds.14-17

What it means

For some women, this could mean an earlier diagnosis and a greater variety of treatment options.

What it does

Reduces callbacks by up to 40% compared to 2D mammography alone.2,5

What it means

For many women, this means being spared the emotional, practical, and economic toll of additional testing, including biopsies, when there could be nothing wrong.

The Genius exam is superior to conventional 2D mammograms, which is why many women are switching. Since 2011, over 12 million women in the US have had a Genius exam.

The experience is comparable to a 2D mammogram and only adds seconds to the exam.1

Did you know?

In 2017, more than 250,000 women are expected to be diagnosed with an invasive form of breast cancer.10 That’s why innovative screening technology that allows for better, earlier breast cancer detection is critical.
