HOUSTON--(BUSINESS WIRE)--The first large-scale U.S. study comparing conventional 2D mammography screening exams alone versus 2D mammography with the addition of 3D mammography (breast tomosynthesis) technology has been completed at TOPS Comprehensive Breast Center. The study showed that, with the addition of 3D mammography, there was a significant reduction in recall rates as well as an increase in cancer detection, particularly invasive cancer found across all breast tissue densities. The results of the study were published in the June issue of the American Journal of Roentgenology (AJR).
