    FDA Approves 3-D Mammography System

    Wall Street Journal | Jennifer Corbett Dooren

    The Food and Drug Administration on Friday approved the first three-dimensional mammography system developed by Hologic Inc. to screen for breast cancer, with hopes the device will prove better than current mammography technology. The device, formally known as the Silenia Dimensions System, augments traditional two-dimensional images produced by a mammogram with a three-dimensional image to be used in breast-cancer screening and diagnosis. The system would provide both types of images during a scan so doctors could compare images with previous ones from conventional mammograms.
