Less Time. More Comfort.

What takes less time than a stop light, could save your life and is now more comfortable than ever? 

3D mammograms at Bryan with new comfort technology. That's right! 

Julie describes her past mammograms as necessary but painful, up until the new comfort curve paddle advances. Now she says, "It's fast, only 3.7 seconds, and I didn't feel any pain."

Watch to see how new technology is changing the way women feel about getting a mammogram!

Benefits of 3D Mammography

  • 40 percent more invasive cancers found over 2D mammography
  • Up to a 40 percent reduction in recall rates, decreasing patient anxiety
  • Better visualization of masses, distortions and asymmetric densities
  • Eliminates overlapping structures in the breast

Patients Appreciate New Comfort Curve Technology

Bryan is the first in Lincoln to introduce new advances to make getting a mammogram more comfortable. The new comfort curve paddles make all the difference to our patients: 

  • "It's so much better."
  • "I didn't feel any pain."
  • "It doesn't pinch like the old mammogram - this is much better!"

How 3D Mammography Works

Digital Breast Tomosynthesis (3D Mammography) is FDA-approved. It gives radiologists a three-dimensional image of the breast. Breasts are composed of pockets of dense tissue surrounded by fat, and when x-rayed it creates an image that has overlapping tissue making it difficult to see tiny microcalcifications, and other subtle signs of early cancer.

3D mammography allows our radiologists to see detail in a way never before possible – and that’s important to you because it allows cancer to be detected at its earliest and most treatable stage.

What to Expect During Your 3D Mammography

You will not notice any difference between a traditional 2D mammogram and a 3D mammogram except the imaging with 3D is a little quicker and we use comfort curve smart paddles to make the exam more comfortable. 3D mammography provides the best image possible of your breast and the earliest detection possible.

Who Should Have 3D Mammography

3D mammography is approved for all women who would be undergoing a standard mammogram, in both the screening and diagnostic settings. It is especially beneficial for women with dense breast tissue.


The Bryan Imaging & Diagnostic Center at our Pine Lake Campus (40th & Pine Lake Road) is often the most cost-effective option for this testing due to our new pricing structure. To learn more about testing at this location and get a price estimate, call the Bryan Price Line at 402-481-4900.
