While 3-D mammograms are fully approved by the FDA and improve on traditional mammography in almost every way, they're still not considered the standard for breast cancer screening. Because 3-D mammograms are relatively new, many hospitals and imaging centers may not have access to the necessary specialized equipment.
According to the FDA's Mammography Quality Standards Act Program, our of the 8,700 accredited facilities across the country, certified digital breast tomosynthesis units exist in only 4,600 as of 2019. That means only slightly more than half of the facilities have the necessary equipment and expertise needed to provide cutting-edge mammography screenings.
