Clinical utility of contrast-enhanced mammography


Contrast-enhanced mammography combines morphological and functional techniques in one. The mammography system first acquires a low-energy scan, which is similar to a conventional diagnostic digital mammogram. Then a high-energy scan is acquired. These two images are used to create a subtracted image showing the contrast agent uptake. If contrast is enhanced, a cancer is most probably present.

Watch the video of Prof. Dr. Luis Javier Pina Insausti in Pamplona, Spain, and hear about his experience with contrast-enhanced mammography. Learn about the indications for which he finds this novel technique useful and what if any limitations he has found.
