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.
