Mammography topics

Contrast Enhanced Mammography

Digital mammography technology is continuing to progress. A new method is gaining more and more attention, especially for the diagnostic workup of recalled women: contrast-enhanced dual energy mammography (CEM). It combines contrast-enhanced (CE) imaging, which is familiar from computed tomography (CT), angiography, and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), with the dual energy (DE) imaging used with CT and dual energy X-ray absorptiometry (DXA). The clinical value of CEM continues to be comprehensively studied. 

It’s important to understand how the method works and the experiences with CEM in the clinical routine so far. A webinar and a white paper aim to deepen these topics.

Adventures with Contrast Enhanced Mammography

Dr. Noel Bergquist, an assistant professor at the University of Tennessee at Knoxville's Breast Center, presents a diverse series of cases, after a brief review of Siemens' Titanium Contrast Enhanced Mammography (TICEM). (Clinical Focus Talks, Nov. 2021)

The clinical use of Wide-Angle Tomosynthesis and Titanium Contrast Enhanced Mammography 

This online seminar by Associate Prof. Dr. Luis Pina (Pamplona / Spain) explains the benefits of a morphological vs. functional breast imaging (50° Wide-Angle Tomosynthesis and TiCEM) . When to use DBT / CEM in the diagnostic process incl. clinical cases. Includes studies and current clinical discussions (June 2020).
