North Memorial Health will begin offering breast tomosynthesis (3D mammography) on October 1, 2019.

Studies are showing that the benefits compared with conventional digital mammography include a higher cancer detection rate and fewer patient recalls. While studies are underway to better define full benefits, tomosynthesis is believed to be especially effective for women with dense breasts.
