Digital Breast Tomosynthesis

The medical community has long sought ways to improve the accuracy of breast cancer screenings. A new digital technology, Breast Tomosynthesis, has proven to be an advanced method compared to digital mammography, featuring higher cancer detection rates and fewer patient recalls for additional testing. Why is this important to you? Better sensitivity will likely translate into more lives saved. Lower recall rates result in fewer patients experiencing short-term anxiety awaiting test results, which is why Breast Tomosynthesis will have a positive impact on patient care for years to come. All SDMI imaging centers offer Breast Tomosynthesis/3D mammography. SDMI is certified as a Breast Imaging Center of Excellence by the American College of Radiology.

Technology

In 2016 SDMI was one of the first to introduce 3D mammography, or Tomosythesis to patients with the GE Senoclair. And 2 short years later, SDMI rolled out the latest advancements in 3Dmammography with the Senographe Pristina by GE.

This new mammography system changes the entire exam experience.  Built with the objective of easing patient anxiety, the Pristina promotes a sense of calm.  With its elegant lighting and rounded shape, patients are able to relax and remain steady with a well-positioned head rest and soft arm rest.  For physicians, the Senographe Pristina provides exceptional images with no additional radiatio nexposure to patients while providing sharp and detailed picture for breast cancer detection and diagnosis. “Perhaps the single most important advancement in medical imaging to benefit women is happening right now.  Tomosynthesis, or 3D mammography, will revolutionize how we read mammograms. We will find more cancers, have fewer call-backs AND cause less stress and anxiety to patients. What’s more this system provides the lowest amount of radiation to our patients. These units have radiation doses that are equivalent to standard 2 D mammography.” explains Dr. Aanshu Shah, Director of Women’s Imaging at SDMI. The new Senographe Pristina™ mammography system from GE Healthcare changes the entire exam experience and was built with one objective in mind: to ease patient anxiety from the moment they enter the exam room.
