Women's Imaging Services

Mammograms made easy


Regular mammograms help find breast cancer at an early stage, when treatment is most likely to be successful. The American College of Radiology (ACR) and the Society of Breast Imaging (SBI) recommend annual screening mammograms for women beginning at age 40, and the experts here at CDI agree. 

The expert staff at CDI in Dallas/Fort Worth, Texas will put you at ease and provide you the information you need to know about your breast health. They’ll also help talk you through the range of women’s imaging options we have available to meet your unique needs. It's your choice where you go for your annual mammogram.




Mammography

Mammography is a safe, low-dose X-ray picture of the breast that allows for early detection of breast cancer. Screening mammograms are routine, yearly exams for women with no new breast problems. If you have a new breast symptom or problem, you will need a diagnostic mammogram

A physician order is not necessary for an annual screening mammogram, but is required for a diagnostic mammogram. All of our imaging centers offer screening and/or diagnostic mammography.


3D Mammography

Tomosynthesis, or 3D mammography, is another service we provide for screening breast tissue for possible signs of cancer. This technology is particularly useful to screen women who have dense breast tissueA 3D mammogram complements standard 2D mammography and is performed at the same time. There is no additional compression required and it only takes a few more seconds.

Our comfortable center environments and staff of experts will provide you with the best experience possible. Learn about what to expect below.

A 3D mammogram is a revolutionary new screening and diagnostic tool designed for early breast cancer detection that can be done in conjunction with a traditional 2D digital mammogram. 

During the 3D part of the exam, the X-ray arm sweeps in a slight arc over your breast, taking multiple breast images.

During a typical annual screening mammogram (2D or 3D), images are taken of each breast from many angles. Sometimes a follow-up diagnostic mammogram is needed after a screening mammogram to collect more information about your breast tissue. A diagnostic mammogram may take longer than a screening mammogram as it requires more images and different angles to rule out any abnormalities.
