Genius 3D Mammography, now at Canberra Imaging Group
Breast cancer is the most common cancer diagnosed in women representing 28% of all cancers in females. (2,3) Early detection through regular mammograms is the best defence against breast cancer (1) and there is a significant increased chance of survival if abnormalities are found early. (1)
Genius 3D mammography, now at Canberra Imaging Group (CIG), is the only system with proven superior clinical performance. (5,7,8,9)
- Clinically, 3D mammography is gaining efficacy and improving outcomes (5)
- 3D mammography detects 41% more invasive cancers than 2D alone (5)
- Studies show a 15-40% reduction in recall rates (5)
- Cancer detection is increased by 27% overall (5)
- Patients across all age groups and breast densities benefit from 3D mammography (6)
- By minimising structure overlap, 3D mammography optimally demonstrates masses and architectural distortion (4)
