At the UCHealth Diane O’Connor Thompson Breast Center in the Denver metro area, our caring team of breast cancer specialists including CU Medicine radiologists, doctors and other support professionals work together to provide care from annual screening mammograms to genetic counseling for women with a higher risk of breast cancer, we offer advanced imaging capabilities and biopsy options including 3D mammography. This state-of-the art technology uses multiple low-dose images at multiple angles to produce a series of one-millimeter images that create a 3D reconstruction of the breast. This enhanced visualization aids in the detection of breast cancer, and greatly reduces the need for additional imaging.

3D mammography offers many advantages to traditional mammograms including:

  • 40% increase in early detection of invasive breast cancers; 35% increase in all other breast cancer detection.
  • 40% decrease in false-positives, reducing unnecessary call backs.
    All of our radiologists are fellowship trained, board certified, and are solely dedicated to breast imaging. Our Breast Imaging Clinic is fully accredited by the American College of Radiology and the FDA.

‘”UCHealth’s breast health program is innovated and on the cutting edge with technology, utilizing Hologic Dimensions mammography units and GE Logiq 10 ultrasound units. We offer 2D and 3D mammograms, ultrasound guided biopsies, and upright stereo and tomo biopsies. We employ breast fellow trained radiologists as well as dedicated breast surgeons. We are also accredited by the ACR.” — Debra Lloyd, Hospital Staff
