It has been observed that every year, a very high percentage of elderly women suffer from the disease of breast cancer. This is due to the lack of regular breast check-ups, and it would get turned into a breast cancer. This cancer is not easily detected, as it does not have so many painful symptoms. So, the right attitude to examine this cancer in your body is through a test of digital 3d mammography.
3D mammography is an advanced technique which is used to determine the existence of breast cancer lumps in your breast or underarms. During the test, a part of the body is exposed to a small dose of ionizing radiation to produce images of the inside of the body. This technology is basically an X-ray imaging of the breast, in which the front as well as the side images of the patient breast is taken to get a better understanding of the extent of the cancer.
There are two types of mammography which are on practice for an early detection of breast cancer:
Digital Radiography: Digital mammography, which is also called full-field digital mammography (FFDM). It allows you to view the high resolution digital images produced by a DR acquisition system. It produce images of the breast, the electrical signals are used that can be displayed on a computer screen or can be printed on a special film similar to traditional mammograms.
Computed Radiography: In this technique, the digital images of the breast are taken that can help the software in detecting any conspicuous abnormality in the region or any other sign that might indicate the presence of cancer.
These advancements found in the 3d mammography, are saving so many lives and also it use less time and therefore save money.
