SOUTHINGTON - The Hospital of Central Connecticut (HOCC) at Bradley Memorial Hospital offers patients digital breast tomosynthesis (also known as 3D mammography), an advanced breast imaging technology.

Tomosynthesis uses low-dose x-rays and computer software to create three-dimensional images of the breasts. These images improve the ability of physicians to diagnose breast cancer with a 40 percent increase in the detection rate for invasive cancers.

“We are proud to offer this advanced technology to our community in a convenient setting,” said Gary Havican, president of The Hospital of Central Connecticut. “Early detection saves lives and mammograms are an important tool in identifying breast abnormalities. Tomosynthesis allows us to provide exceptional care to our patients.”

Digital breast tomosynthesis is offered at the HOCC Bradley Memorial Hospital campus, 81 Meriden Ave., Southington.

To schedule a mammogram, call 860-276-5382.
