A special type of X-ray of the breasts, a mammogram helps you and your health care provider monitor your breast health. Regular screening mammograms can assist in detecting changes in breast tissue long before you can feel them.

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 doctors 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 Orland Park and the Women's Center via the main lobby of Palos Hospital.
