Imaging Tests We Can Review
The TeleMammography Specialists offer nationwide healthcare providers the ability to receive quick results about many common mammogram tests, including:
2D Mammogram Screening
A 2D mammogram is a digital scan of the breast. This examination of the breast has been the traditional approach to screening for any potential abnormalities of breast tissue, which is produced using multiple X-ray images of the target area.
3D mammography, also known as digital breast tomosynthesis, is a test that uses a series of scans from various angles to achieve a three-dimensional image of a woman’s breast. This imaging test has become the new standard for women seeking to screen for breast cancer, particularly those that are of an invasive nature.
2D Breast Ultrasound
Ultrasound testing of the breast is not generally used as a screening tool, but rather, as a way to determine whether the tissue is normal, firm and solid, or filled with fluid.
3D Breast Ultrasound
Similar to the comparison between a 2D or 3D mammography, the primary difference between a 2D and 3D breast ultrasound is that the 3D version of this test provides additional information into whether or not the patient may have a solid or cystic mass present in the breast. A 3D ultrasound provides physicians with a multiple views of the breast instead of a flat and static image created by its 2D counterpart.
For patients with exceptionally dense breast tissue, a magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) test may be performed to detect any possible issues with the blood flow to this region of the body.
Analog Comparison Films
Prior to advanced digital mammography testing there were analog comparison films. The TeleMammography Specialists are able to digitize these old films and return them for permanent electronic storage.
Patient Notification Lay Letters
As required by law, all physicians must send a report to their patients in response to any type of mammogram test performed. Our skilled radiologists offer to complete this extra step for you as a part of our TeleMammography services!
The Breast Imaging and Reporting Data System, abbreviated as BI-RADS is a resource used by healthcare providers expertly communicate results of a mammogram, breast ultrasound, or MRI test of the breast. The TeleMammography Specialists are able to utilize this system in order to quickly and effectively translate the results of these various tests, and to relay their recommendations regarding further treatment.
It is our goal to continually provide service to healthcare professionals that makes it as simple as possible for them to receive fast and accurate results in reference to different mammography imaging tests. For this reason, all partners of TeleMammography Specialists are able to easily access patient reports and letters through our online resources.
Should physicians or their patients request additional information about their mammography images, our radiologists will happily speak with them over video conference to address and and all questions or concerns.
