The Woman’s Clinic is proud to be the first private OB/GYN office in the Jackson metro area to offer 3D mammograms to our patients. We provide the latest in screening technology to partner with you against breast cancer. While a traditional 2D mammogram provides a flat image of the breast, 3D technology sweeps in an arc over the breast, building images from multiple angles. Read more about the benefits of 3D mammograms here.
This technology uses 3D ultrasound imaging to evaluate breast density levels and detect if cancer is currently present in dense tissue. ABUS is typically used as a supplementary breast screening technique along with mammograms. Women may have a mammogram first, then follow up for an advanced screening with ABUS.
Our Breast Center is located at 501 Marshall Street, Suite 401, Jackson, MS 39202.
All of our doctors are located at our Jackson clinic, as well as our Physician Assistant and Nurse Practitioner.

The exam is pain-free. Before the it begins, a mesh membrane is attached to the ultrasound scanner. Lotion is then applied to the breast to create good contact between the skin and the transducer device. The ABUS operator positions the ultrasound transducer on the breast to scan the tissue, applying pressure. Tissue scanning may take up to one minute, as the device glides across the breast.
The entire exam may take up to 20 minutes.
Most ABUS exams are covered by insurance, but we recommend contacting your provider prior to your exam to check your medical coverage.
