Mammography 3D Tomosynthesis System
Digital mammography has become the preferred technology for breast cancer screening.
Main point in mammography is that the image quality is the key to early detection. Here, at our Hospital Universiti Sains Malaysia has the mammography 3d system called The Selenia Dimension from Hologic. The Selenia Dimensions is the first commercially available tomosynthesis system for breast cancer screening and diagnosis. The Selenia Dimensions system is a powerful screening tool in the fight against breast cancer. It delivers the same exceptional digital mammograms and takes the next level in breast imaging with breast tomosynthesis – a transformational technology in breast care. The flexibility of the Selenia Dimensions platform allows our technologist to use the system for conventional mammography, breast tomosynthesis alone, or as breast tomosynthesis screening exam in which both a digital mammogram and breast tomosynthesis sets are captured in the same compression.
Moreover, masses, distortions and asymmetric densities are better visualized with the breast tomosynthesis. The Selenia Dimensions platform has the potential to reduce the number of exposures for diagnostic imaging, without sacrificing any valuable patient data, which can result in a reduced x-ray dose for your patients. The breast tomosynthesis provides clear, high-resolution images that virtually eliminate tissue overlap, giving you the tools to accurately and confidently confirm a cancer or dismiss false positives. The extraordinary sharp image detail of the Selenia Dimensions system helps you better visualize masses and asymmetric densities for clearer diagnostic rulings. Furthermore, for accessing difficult lesions, the MultiCare™ Platinum prone breast biopsy table offers the latest advances in stereotactic technology making it the ideal system for characterization of calcifications, masses and architectural distortion. Intuitive Cartesian Coordinates help to ensure both accurate targeting (+/- 1 mm) and safe, easy access to most lesions, including the chest wall and axillary regions.
