Diagnostic Tests / 3D Digital Mammography

Digital mammography is a specialized form of mammography that uses digital receptors and computers instead of x-ray film to help examine breast tissue for breast cancer.

3D TOMOSYNTHESIS : Tomosynthesis is a three-dimensional examination that can minimize the effects of structural overlap.

Limitation of Conventional Mammography

  • The decreased sensitivity in women with dense breast tissue.
  • Poor specificity with recall rates up to 10% for negative or benign findings.
  • False-positive findings often lead to unnecessary follow-up studies and /or biopsies.
  • Additional tests can lead to additional cost and anxiety for the patients.

Advantages of Digital Mammography with 3D Tomosynthesis

  • Full Field Digital Mammography (FFDM) allows Low Dose Radiation examinations of Patient.
  • Better Contrast Resolution & Accurate diagnosis.
  • Extremely fast & facilitates Quick Reporting.
  • Reduce repeat exposures due to motion artifacts.
  • Reduce dependence on previously required additional mammographic views.
  • Record Keeping.

Advantages of Digital Breast Tomosynthesis

  • A reduction in the tissue overlap leading to increase sensitivity and specificity of breast cancer detection.
  • Improves detection and characterization of breast lesions especially in women with dense breast.
  • This improvement in diagnostic accuracy can be achieved by enhanced detection of lesions, improvement in the analysis of the margins of a lesion and precise localization of a lesion.

NM Offers 3D Digital Mammograpgy with Tomosynthesis at Marine Lines & Khar centres.
