3D (three-dimensional) mammography is now available! 3D technology is unique due to the wide angle that is used to create a 3D image that is generated from many images of the breast taken at a variety of angles. These images are assembled into a 3D view of the breast so the radiologist can view the breast tissue layer by layer in fine detail, which produces a better overall picture. This is particularly beneficial for patients with dense breast tissue. The 3D technology provides the physician an increased ability to detect and diagnose very small tumors as well as target teh size, shape and location of the tumors.
The new CT scanner, an upgrade from the 4-slice CT scanner, allows for higher quality imaging and clearer samples for a more accurate diagnosis. Since the equipment scans the images faster, a patient’s examination time is reduced. The CT scan offers a clearer view of scanned anatomy and reveals more details than normal x-ray exams.
The new wide-bore MRI unit will also provide faster and more efficient images, allowing for a quick, accurate diagnosis. Without using x-rays, the MRI machine uses a large magnet, radio waves and a computer to produce imaging of all portions of the anatomy. With this new technology, an MRI scan averages between 15 and 30 minutes for most procedures. Other advantages of the unit include a much larger bore (opening) so claustrophobia typically is not an issue as well asaccommodation of patients weighing up to 500 pounds. A patient can listen to their iPod, favorite CD or satellite radio station choice while their scan is performed.
