Contrast Mammography has been shown to detect cancers often not visible on a mammogram. A contrast mammography exam is performed following a mammogram and/or ultrasound to learn more about a suspected area of interest.
One powerful platform many imaging possibilities
Selenia Dimensions I-View software for Contrast Enhanced 2D (CE2D) Imaging,1 provides functional imaging information and highly detailed 2D images for enhanced precision in breast cancer detection. With I-View software, the Hologic Genius™ 3D MAMMOGRAPHY™ exam images may also be combined with CE2D Imaging, creating powerful studies with the functional imaging benefits of contrast, and proven advantages of the Genius™ 3D MAMMOGRAPHY™ exam.2
I-View CE2D Imaging is a simple upgrade to any Selenia Dimensions system, giving breast imaging practices an efficient pathway to expanded diagnostic capabilities.
A contrast mammography examination, commonly referred to as Contrast Enhanced 2D Imaging (CE2D), provides additional information beyond a normal mammogram that may improve breast cancer detection. Contrast mammography refers to the imaging of a drug, known as a contrast agent, using mammographic x-ray imaging equipment. The contrast agents used are the same as ones commonly used in standard CT examinations2 (commonly known as CAT scans).
Contrast mammography works by using a drug that has been shown to go to areas in the breast where there are growing cancers.
More patient data in one seamless workflow
The Selenia® Dimensions® system acquires a pair of high and low energy images in rapid succession; subtracting one from another eliminates the structural background of a mammogram, revealing clear information on contrast agent dynamics.
I-View software provides 2D contrast information for both 2D and 3D MAMMOGRAPHY™ images with image quality and dose optimization designed specifically for CE2D Imaging.
CE2D Imaging can be used with any of the Selenia Dimensions compression paddles, maintaining ease of use for the technologist and patient comfort during positioning.
