A mammogram is one of the best ways to detect breast cancer but many women are known to avoid it due to associated pain and discomfort while undergoing the said examination. The 3D Digital (Hologic) mammogram at Durdans Hospital ensures minimal pain resulting from less compression, which in no way compromises its accuracy. Durdans Hospital’s Hologic Selenia® Dimensions® 6000 3D MAMMOGRAPHY™ system can detect even the smallest breast cancers and further provides unique advantages of Tomoguided Biopsy and Synthesised 2D.


Durdans Hospital’s Hologic Selenia® Dimensions® 6000 3D MAMMOGRAPHY™ system is the only digital mammogram (3D) capable of performing tomoguided biopsy or 3D biopsy in Sri Lanka. Tomoguided Biopsy is the process of using image slice(s) to localise and sample a suspected lesion detected on a mammogram. Tomoguided biopsy is therefore superior to other machines that can only perform stereotactic biopsy (biopsy using 2D images) which is less accurate and is also 100% accurate for when biopsy is done we can look at the needle tip in the lesion. This is not possible in 2D.
