3D and Digital Technology

Tulane Medical Center is the first in the Gulf South to offer 3D mammograms, also called breast tomosynthesis. With 3D digital mammograms and conventional digital mammography we are able to provide the highest image quality, which allows us to find tumors that are smaller than you can feel. You experience a shorter exam time with faster image results. We also offer MammoPad® for a more comfortable screening experience.
