A Danbury-based company is making strides in detecting breast cancer. During this national Breast Cancer Awareness Month, Hologic is touting it's new 3D mammography technology. Danbury State Senator Mike McLachlan says the new technology nearly eliminates false positives that often happen in existing screenings.
Unlike conventional 2D mammography where the presence of overlapping breast tissue can make it more difficult to detect cancer, Hologic's 3D screening makes the image clearer. The company says the technology detects invasive cancers earlier when the disease is easiest to treat.
