Genius™ 3D Mammography™


Genius™ 3D Mammography™ is offered at the Maury Regional Women's Center in Columbia, Marshall Medical Center in Lewisburg and at Spring Hill Imaging Center in Spring Hill. Utilizing advanced technology, Genius™ 3D exams are clinically proven to significantly increase the detection of breast cancer when compared to conventional 2D mammography. 

A Genius exam includes both 2D (conventional) and 3D images. During the 3D portion of the exam, an X-ray arm sweeps in a slight arc over the breast, taking multiple images. A computer then converts the images into a stack of thin layers, allowing the radiologist to review the breast tissue one layer at a time. A Genius exam requires no additional compression and takes just a few seconds longer than a conventional 2D breast cancer screening exam.

Most insurances will cover the 2D portion of the exam. BlueCross BlueShield, Cigna, Aetna, United Healthcare, Medicare and Medicare Advantage currently cover the 3D portion as well and other insurance providers are expected to follow.

If your insurance provider will only cover a conventional 2D exam, that portion will be filed with your insurance and applied to your deductible. The 3D portion will be your responsibility and must be paid at the time of the exam. The 3D portion is affordably priced at $95 if not covered by insurance.
