Genius™ 3D Mammography™ Exams in Schenectady, NY
CareNet Medical Group is excited to offer Genius™ 3D Mammography™ Exams, developed by Hologic, Inc., a worldwide leader in Women's Health. Utilizing advanced breast tomosynthesis technology, Genius exams are clinically proven to significantly increase the detection of breast cancers, and also decreasing the number of women asked to return for additional testing.
In conventional 2D Mammography, overlapping tissue is a leading reason why small breast
cancers may be missed and normal tissue may appear abnormal, leading to unnecessary callbacks.
A Genius exam includes a three-dimensional method of imaging that can greatly reduce the tissue
2D vs 3D Mammography
A Genius exam includes both 2D images and tomosynthesis scans. During the tomosynthesis-
DIMENSIONAL portion of the exam, an X-ray arm sweeps in a slight arc over the breast, taking
multiple images. A computer then converts the images into a stack of thin layers, allowing the
radiologist to review the breast tissue one layer at a time. A Genius exam requires no additional
compression and takes just a few seconds longer than a conventional 2D breast cancer screening
