New technology offers patients more accurate results

From UR Noyes Health

GENESEO  — UR Medicine Noyes Health is happy to offer 3D Tomosynthesis mammograms at Noyes Health Services in Geneseo.

“The new 3D mammogram machine is the newest technology in breast imaging,” said Jill Lawton, Lead Mammography Technologist at UR Medicine Noyes Health. “It is especially beneficial for women with dense breast tissue. The technology decreases the likelihood of patient having to be called back for additional imaging after a screening exam. Patients won’t notice a difference in the exam – the compression and exposure time are about the same as with a 2D mammogram.”

Funding for the project was made possible thanks to a $1.5M bipartisan omnibus-spending package for Fiscal Year 2023. The spending package, initially submitted to then-Rep. Chris Jacobs, was secured by U.S. Senate Majority Leader Charles E. Schumer and U.S. Senator Kirsten Gillibrand, provided over $250M of support for community-based projects in the Rochester-Finger Lakes Region.

The new mammogram machine in Geneseo is one of the many recent additions to Noyes Health to help further its mission to provide high quality healthcare to the Southern Tier and Finger Lakes regions.

Appointments for mammograms can be made by calling (585) 991-6016 for the Geneseo location, or (585) 335-4235 for the Dansville location. Walk-in appointments are also available at both locations.
