Early detection is your best defense

3D Mammography

CMH Imaging Services offers you the most accurate and comfortable mammogram available—the Genius™ 3D Mammography™ exam with the SmartCurve™. It provides better, earlier breast cancer detection compared to 2D alone.

The Genius exam is the only mammogram FDA approved as superior for women with dense breasts—reducing the chance that you will be called back for additional testing.
