Digital Mammography

Welcome to our Digital Mammography service, where cutting-edge technology meets compassionate care to revolutionize breast health screening. Led by a team of experienced professionals, we are committed to providing thorough and accurate assessments of breast tissue, ensuring early detection and effective management of breast abnormalities.

What is Digital Mammography?

Digital mammography is an advanced imaging technique that utilizes digital technology to capture and analyze images of the breast. Unlike traditional film-based mammography, which uses X-ray films to capture images, digital mammography converts X-ray images into digital data that can be viewed and manipulated on computer screens. This digital approach offers several advantages over conventional methods, including enhanced image quality, improved detection accuracy, and streamlined data management.

Benefits of Digital Mammography

  1. Enhanced Image Quality: Digital mammography produces high-resolution images with exceptional clarity and detail, allowing radiologists to visualize subtle changes in breast tissue more accurately.
  2. Improved Detection Accuracy: The digital format enables radiologists to enhance, magnify, and manipulate images, facilitating the detection of small lesions, calcifications, and other abnormalities that may be indicative of breast cancer.

  3. Reduced Radiation Exposure: Digital mammography requires lower radiation doses compared to traditional film-based mammography, minimizing the risk of radiation exposure while maintaining diagnostic quality.

  4. Efficient Workflow: Digital mammography offers faster image acquisition and processing times, leading to shorter appointment durations and quicker results for patients.

Services Offered Under Digital Mammography

  1. Screening Mammography: Routine breast cancer screenings recommended for women of a certain age or risk category to detect any signs of breast abnormalities early on.

  2. Diagnostic Mammography: Comprehensive imaging tests conducted to investigate abnormalities found during screening mammograms or to evaluate symptoms such as breast lumps, pain, or nipple discharge.

  3. 3D Digital Breast Tomosynthesis (DBT): Advanced imaging technique that produces three-dimensional images of the breast, allowing for better visualization of breast tissue and improved detection of abnormalities, particularly in women with dense breast tissue.

  4. Breast Ultrasound: Supplementary imaging modality used in conjunction with mammography to further evaluate suspicious findings, characterize breast lesions, and guide biopsies if necessary.

  5. Breast MRI (Magnetic Resonance Imaging): Advanced imaging test that uses magnetic fields and radio waves to create detailed images of the breast, often utilized for high-risk screening, assessing the extent of breast cancer, and monitoring treatment response.

  6. Image-Guided Breast Biopsy: Minimally invasive procedure performed using mammography, ultrasound, or MRI guidance to sample breast tissue for further evaluation when a suspicious abnormality is detected, helping to determine whether it is cancerous or benign.

  7. Breast Density Assessment: Evaluation of breast density, which refers to the proportion of fibrous and glandular tissue relative to fatty tissue in the breast, as it can affect the accuracy of mammography and breast cancer risk assessment.

  8. Genetic Counseling and Testing: Counseling services provided to individuals with a family history of breast cancer or known genetic mutations associated with an increased risk of breast cancer, along with genetic testing options to assess inherited risk factors.

  9. Multidisciplinary Breast Cancer Care: Comprehensive care coordination involving a team of breast health specialists, including radiologists, oncologists, surgeons, pathologists, and other healthcare professionals, to provide personalized treatment plans and support throughout the breast cancer journey.

  10. Patient Education and Support: Resources, counseling, and support groups offered to patients undergoing breast imaging procedures to help alleviate anxiety, promote breast health awareness, and empower individuals to make informed decisions about their care.
