Miami, FL (PRWEB) April 10, 2014
The Center for Diagnostic Imaging in Miami announces a new advancement in mammography screening, 3D mammography.
Detecting cancer in its earliest stages provides the best chance that it can be dealt with most effectively. Until recently, the best way to detect breast cancer was through the use of digital mammography. While digital mammography is still one of the most advanced technologies available for breast screenings, it only provides doctors with a two-dimensional view of the breast.
Since the breast is composed of pockets of dense tissue surrounded by fat, when it is X-rayed, the image created may be hazy. The overlapping tissue in the image can make it difficult to see tiny areas and other subtle signs of early cancer.
3D mammography, or breast tomosynthesis, is a revolutionary technology that gives radiologists the ability to identify and characterize individual breast structures without the confusion of overlapping breast tissue. It uses high-powered computing to convert digital breast images into a stack of thin layers or “slices”. This builds a 3D image of the breast. During the exam, the X-ray arm sweeps in a slight arc over the breast, taking multiple images from multiple angles.
This technology helps radiologists find even the smallest of cancerous areas; it also helps to rule out “false positives”, reducing the number of women who are called back for a diagnostic mammogram when they don’t actually need one. 3D mammography is especially helpful in detecting cancers in dense breast tissue.
The digital mammography experts at the Center for Diagnostic Imaging and Comprehensive Breast Care Centers provide women with the most advanced care available to help keep them healthy.
The Center for Diagnostic Imaging Miami staff is dedicated to providing the highest level of efficient and excellent care for each patient who walks through their door.
The center, known for their reputation as one of the best full body scan Miami facilities in the state, is owned and managed by physicians, radiologists, technicians, and other highly trained and qualified staff.
The facility's mission is to serve the healthcare needs of the Miami community with the use of the most technologically advanced medical equipment within the diagnostic imaging industry.
With this type of technology available at their fingertips, staff members have the ability to better identify any issues or concerns impacting the health and well-being of each individual patient.
The Center for Diagnostic Imaging currently offers the following scanning services:
- Computer tomography Scan (CAT Scan)
- Computed Tomography Angiography Scan (CTA Scan)
- Magnetic Resonance Angiography scan (MRA)
- Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI Scan)
- Nuclear Medicine
- Position Emission Tomography Scan (PET CT Scan)
In addition to their diagnostic services, the center is also known as one of the most preferred breast ultrasound Miami facilities. When it comes to breast exams women the can receive 3D Mammography scans, breast MRI guided biopsies, and stereotactic biopsies.
