Our Breast Center’s services, features, and resources include—
Digital 3D Mammography
Advancements in mammography screening technology have brought about the evolution of 3D mammography with breast tomosynthesis.
With 3D mammography, the images of the breast are taken in slices which present a more three-dimensional visual of the breast. The radiologist can see all around and between the breast tissues with greater clarity than ever before.
All-digital mammograms mean:
- Quicker mammograms, since there’s no need to wait for film images to be developed
- Images can be viewed instantly by the technologist and radiologist images can be easily transferred electronically with no loss of image quality
- Computer-assisted optimization helps radiologists detect micro-calcifications that might be missed on traditional film mammograms
Once a mass is detected, often the next step is an ultrasound. Breast ultrasound is a procedure that may be used to determine whether a lump is a cyst (sac containing fluid) or a solid mass and can also be used to precisely locate the position of a known tumor.
