Digital 2D Mammography
Mammograms are the gold standard for finding breast cancer in its early stages. Digital mammograms using special X-ray equipment provide images that radiologists can manipulate on a computer. The enhanced images allow doctors to more easily target areas of concern that may require more testing.
Digital 3D Mammography
3D mammography delivers a series of high-resolution images of different layers of the breast. This technology provides screening accuracy and allows doctors to examine your breast tissue layer by layer. Instead of viewing the complexities of your breast tissue in a flat image, as with conventional 2D mammography, fine details are more visible and no longer hidden by tissue.
Guided Breast Biopsy: Stereotactic, MRI and Ultrasound
Physicians can use several technologies to guide minimally invasive biopsies of breast tissue to check for cancer. These guided biopsies enable the physician to precisely locate and target the cells for biopsy. Each technique uses a different technology to produce images:
- Stereotactic uses special X-ray equipment.
- MRI uses a magnetic field and radio waves.
- Ultrasound uses high-frequency sound waves.
This procedure tests the lymph nodes near the breast to see whether cancer has spread following these steps:
- Your physician injects the breast with radioactive tracer material.
- The material spreads to nearby lymph nodes.
- Your physician uses a gamma scanner to take images of the breast, chest and armpit areas to determine if any lymph nodes have become cancerous.
