3D Imaging

3-D is a revolutionary new screening and diagnostic breast imaging tool to improve the early detection of breast cancer. Southern Hills Hospital is proud to now offer a new breast tomosynthesis solution designed with a three-dimensional imaging technology. This latest technology is an important step in detecting breast cancer as early as possible.

Southern Hills’ equipment uses a low-dose short X-ray sweep around the positioned breast with nine exposures acquired with a “step-and-shoot” method, removing the potential motion from the tube helping to reduce blur and increase image sharpness.

A key challenge when performing screening mammography is keeping the radiation levels as low as possible. With Southern Hills’ equipment, there is no increase in dose from a 2D standard mammogram to a 3D view, which means there is no increased radiation to patients during the 3D breast exam.

Red Rock Radiology radiologists are board certified and fellowship trained to offer superior service and quality to our referring physicians. We are accredited by the American College of Radiology (ACR) in MRI, computed tomography, ultrasound and nuclear medicine.

The ACR gold seal of accreditation represents the highest level of image quality and patient safety. It is awarded only to facilities meeting ACR Practice Guidelines and Technical Standards after a peer-review evaluation by board-certified physicians and medical physicists who are experts in the field. Image quality, personnel qualifications, adequacy of facility equipment, quality control procedures, and quality assurance programs are assessed. The findings are reported to the ACR Committee on Accreditation, which subsequently provides the practice with a comprehensive report they can use for continuous practice improvement.

The ACR is a national professional organization serving more than 36,000 diagnostic/interventional radiologists, radiation oncologists, nuclear medicine physicians, and medical physicists with programs focusing on the practice of medical imaging and radiation oncology and the delivery of comprehensive health care services.
