EIRMC's Imaging Center offers you a choice of 3D or 2D mammography. The 3D mammography exam allows doctors to see masses and distortions associated with cancers significantly more clearly than conventional 2D mammography. Instead of viewing all of the complexities of your breast tissue in a flat image, as with conventional 2D mammography, fine details are more visible and no longer hidden by the tissue above or below.
Thus, 3D mammography is more accurate: detects 41% more invasive breast cancer and reduces false positives up to 40%.
For both 3D and 2D screening mammograms, you don’t need a doctor’s referral if you are a woman age 40 and over. You just need to make an appointment!
- Save money – no need to pay for a primary care visit first
- Saturdays and evening appointments available
- Supportive care from an all-female mammography staff
- Conveniently located Women’s Imaging Center
- Accredited by the American College of Radiology
Our 3D mammography technology takes many more images of the breast, increasing accuracy and detection, and reducing false positives significantly.
Mammograms, breast ultrasounds, and stereotactic breast biopsies take place at EIRMC’s Imaging Center, located at 1670 John Adams Parkway, in Idaho Falls, diagonally across the intersection from Smith's Food and Drug.
