Holy Cross Hospital is the only eastern Broward County hospital offering Low Dose Genius™ 3D MAMMOGRAPHY™ exams from Hologic, a global leader in breast cancer detection. In a conventional mammogram, overlapping tissue can hide breast cancers and normal breast tissue may appear abnormal, leading to unnecessary callbacks. Low Dose Genius 3D MAMMOGRAPHY™ exams are an advanced type of digital mammogram that offer better cancer detection, fewer call backs, minimal compression time and greater peace of mind at a dose comparable to a conventional digital mammogram.* 

Large clinical studies in the U.S. and Europe* have demonstrated the positive benefits of Low Dose 3D MAMMOGRAPHY™ exams including: 

•Earlier detection of small breast cancers that may be hidden in a conventional mammogram

•Greater accuracy in pinpointing size, shape and location of abnormalities

•Fewer unnecessary biopsies or additional tests

•Greater likelihood of detecting multiple breast tumors

•Clearer images of dense breast tissue

•Maintained 3D MAMMOGRAPHY™ exam performance, at a 2D-like dose

Low Dose Genius 3D MAMMOGRAPHY™ exams are recommended for women of all ages and breast densities. 

Holy Cross Hospital is committed to the fight against breast cancer. In offering the Genius low dose 3D MAMMOGRAPHY™ exams, Holy Cross provides the latest and most effective imaging tool for breast cancer screening.

About Low Dose Genius™ 3D MAMMOGRAPHY™ Exams

Breast tissue and structures in the breast can overlap and cause confusion when viewed with a conventional mammogram. Low Dose Genius™ 3D MAMMOGRAPHY™ exams enable doctors to more clearly see through overlapping tissue to detect cancers, often at an earlier stage.

While Low Dose Genius 3D MAMMOGRAPHY™ exams include a conventional digital mammogram for use during image review, they do not require an X-ray exposure to generate the conventional 2D image, as C-View™ software generates the 2D image from the 3D™ information. 

Low Dose Genius 3D MAMMOGRAPHY™ exams are only available on the Hologic Selenia® Dimensions® breast tomosynthesis system.
