Summa Health has adopted 3D mammography for all mammograms. Patients can now choose 3D or 2D mammograms. With the introduction of 3D mammography at eight imaging locations throughout northeast Ohio, Summa becomes the only hospital in the region to provide this breakthrough technology for both screening and diagnostic exams at all its locations. In 2015, Summa installed the FDA-approved 3D mammography technology because it allows earlier detection of potential breast cancers and reduces unnecessary callbacks. Learn about 3D mammograms.
