With 3D mammography, do women still need an annual screening mammogram?

Yes. All women are at risk for breast cancer, regardless of symptoms or family history. Breast cancer is the most diagnosed cancer in women, affecting one in every eight women in the U.S. Eight out of nine diagnosed women have no family history of breast cancer. Mammograms often can detect potential problems before they can be felt. Early detection greatly increases treatment options and the likelihood of successful recovery. Although 2D/3D combination exams have been proven to detect more cancers, MDI continues to support the American Cancer Society’s guidelines which recommend that women 40 and older receive a routine screening mammogram every year.
