We are proud industry leaders in 3D mammography, offering the highest level of breast radiology care with an unrivalled use of state-of-the-art technology, supported by our team of fully qualified, dedicated mammographers. This ensures the highest quality care across our clinics to help in the fight against breast cancer.

We have a team of specialised breast radiologists across our mammography clinics. This means that if you have a mammogram at our Mitcham, Box Hill or Wagga Wagga clinics, there will be a breast radiologist (specialist) to review your mammogram straight after you have it, prepare the report, and be available for your referring doctor to talk to if required.

Our ongoing leadership in 3D mammography includes using the latest state-of-the-art technology:

  • 3D mammography – We offer high definition 3D mammography (breast tomosynthesis), which is standard for all patients, and high definition synthetic 2D mammography, which minimises radiation dose. Breast tomosynthesis uses high-powered computing to convert digital breast images into a stack of very thin layers or ‘slices’— building what is essentially a ‘3-dimensional mammogram’. This gives our radiologist breast tissue detail in a way never possible before, to enable the breast tissue to be examined a millimetre at a time.
  • Volpara – VolparaTM is software that can accurately and objectively measure mammographic breast density, and we provide the VolparaTM measurement of breast density on your mammogram report. Mammogram reports from other radiology clinics often do not give a clear subjective measure of breast density, let alone an objective measure such as a VolparaTM score. It is important to know your breast density, as having a high breast density for your age increases your risk of developing breast cancer.
  • TransparaTM Artificial Intelligence – Improves the detection of breast cancer on mammograms by acting as an ‘extra pair of eyes’. We are the first site in Australia to offer this technology. Studies show TransparaTM improves both sensitivity and specificity in radiologist reporting of mammograms.
  • Contrast Enhanced Mammography (CEM) – Mammography with an intravenous injection of contrast, which provides additional physiological information in the breast and further increases the detection rate of breast cancer over conventional mammography. CEM can be performed in conjunction with 3D mammography.

What you need to know


There is no preparation required for this examination. It’s recommended you wear a two-piece outfit and you will be advised not to wear talcum powder. Deodorant and perfume are fine. Please advise us of any medication you are taking prior to your scan.

Time required

This scan will take approximately 30 minutes and you may be asked to wait while the radiologist reviews the scan. In many cases, you will undergo an ultrasound scan at the same appointment. There may be a short wait between your mammogram and ultrasound scan while the sonographer and radiologist review the mammogram.

Will I need an injection?

You may require an injection of contrast for this examination and the mammographer will discuss this with you if needed.


Very low x-ray energy is used during the mammography examination, so your radiation exposure is safely below industry guidelines. Special software creates a synthetic 2D image reconstruction from the 3D tomosynthesis scan and eliminates the need for additional x-rays. This reduces both compression time and overall radiation dose.


The report from our radiologist will be forwarded to your doctor as soon as possible. If there are any urgent findings, the radiologist will notify your referring doctor immediately.

What do I need to bring?

  • Referral from your doctor
  • Medicare card (if applicable)
  • Healthcare card/Pension card/Student card (if applicable)
  • Previous x-rays/scans (if applicable)
