Taking Charge: Screening For Breast Cancer | UCSF Health
This article discusses recent developments in advanced derivative technologies associated with digital mammography. Digital breast tomosynthesis — its principles, development, and early clinical trials are reviewed. Contrast enhanced digital mammography and combined imaging systems with digital mammography and ultrasound are also discussed. Although all these methods are currently research programs, they hold promise for improving cancer detection and characterization if early results are confirmed by clinical trials. The Achilles Heel of screening mammography is the detection of cancer in women with radiographic dense breasts. While nearly all cancers will be apparent in fatty breasts, only half will be visible in extremely dense breast [ 1 ].
Digital Mammography Imaging: Breast Tomosynthesis and Advanced Applications
Each year, millions of women undergo mammograms for early detection of possible breast cancer. It's an unpleasant procedure that uses X-rays. Researchers at TU Eindhoven are working on a 'breast-friendly' method, without radiation, that is more accurate and generates 3D rather than 2D images.
