Breast Imaging Studies We Read
The TeleMammography Specialists offer nationwide healthcare providers the ability to receive quick results about many common mammogram tests, including:
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.
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.
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 on whether or not the patient may have a solid or cystic mass present in the breast. A 3D ultrasound provides physicians with multiple views of the breast instead of a flat and static image created by its 2D counterpart.
