Palos Community Hospital's Digital Mammography services offer the most advanced technology in the detection and diagnosis of breast cancer. Digital mammography uses digital technology to convert X-rays of the breast into electronic images that can be enhanced, magnified or manipulated to help facilitate breast cancer detection.

3D™ Breast Cancer Detection

Breast tomosynthesis, 3D Mammography™, is a new technology in the fight against breast cancer. Working in conjunction with digital mammography, breast tomosynthesis captures images in such a way that it allows radiologists to examine breast tissue in one millimeter slices at a time.

Fine details are more clearly visible helping radiologists detect very small cancers while reducing the number of women called back for diagnostic mammograms.

Breast tomosynthesis is available at the Women's Center in Tinley Park and at the Women's Center via the main lobby of Palos Community Hospital.

For more information about breast tomosynthesis, call (708) 923-5104.
