Over the past several years, medical technology companies, especially those involved in mammography, have focused intensively on technological developments to improve diagnostic accuracy.
New imaging approaches such as tomosynthesis and abbreviated MRI are suitable to overcome the limitations of mammography. Experts believe that these possibilities should ultimately be integrated into screening strategies tailored to personal risk.
Contrast-enhanced mammography combines morphological as well as functional information. But has it proven its worth in daily practice? Listen to Prof. Dr. Luis Javier Pina Insausti in Pamplona, Spain, as he discusses his initial experiences and presents his conclusions on this novel technique.
Are all breast tomosynthesis systems the same? Or are there differences that might affect patient outcomes? Listen to Dr. Wayne Lemish from Australia talk about technical aspects of breast tomosynthesis systems and his experiences in his clinical practice.
The scan angle of a tomosynthesis system can make a difference in clinical practice. Dr. Wayne Lemish and his team acquired tomosynthesis images with a narrow-angle and a wide-angle system for the same clinical cases. See the difference!
