Zwanger-Pesiri Radiology is now offering C-View technology on all 3D mammography units. This technology provides 3D mammograms with up to 40 percent less radiation than a traditional combination view, which uses both 2D and 3D images to form an accurate diagnosis.
To do this, C-View takes the images from a 3D mammogram and instantly renders them into 2D versions. This provides the radiologist with two sets of images from one exam. The 2D images that are constructed are not only comparable to those that would have been taken independently, but deliver increased detail regarding certain aspects of the breast. The amount of radiation that a patient is exposed to during a 3D mammogram with C-View is equivalent to a standard 2D mammogram alone.
Zwanger-Pesiri Radiology has performed more than 135,000 mammography exams since 2013. This exam is offered at 18 of Zwanger-Pesiri’s locations across Long Island.
