The More Accurate1-6 Genius™ Exam Just Got More Comfortable7

Mammograms are a woman’s best defense in detecting breast cancer early, but we know that the fear of pain causes many women to delay scheduling their annual mammogram.

That’s why we proudly offer the Genius™ 3D Mammography™ exam that combines better, earlier breast cancer detection1-6 with the improved comfort of the SmartCurve™ breast stabilization system.

Welcome to a mammogram that is more accurate1-6 and more comfortable.7

What to Expect During your Exam

Getting a mammogram with the SmartCurve™ system is just like getting a regular Genius™ exam – only more comfortable!7

The curved design of the compression device mirrors the shape of a woman’s breast to reduce pinching and applies uniform compression over the entire breast for added comfort.

The technologist will view the images of your breasts at the computer workstation to ensure quality images have been captured for review. A radiologist will then examine the images and report results to either your physician or directly to you.

The Genius™ 3D Mammography™ exam (a.k.a.
