Algorithms Enhance Imaging Techniques for Breast Cancer Diagnosis

Facebook Twitter LinkedIn Email Comments
Tomosynthesis, a technique that can produce pseudo 3-D reconstructions, could top traditional mammography in breast cancer screening and detection, a recent study suggests. Researchers at Emory University have found that digital tomosynthesis imaging offers more sensitivity and specificity than mammography in breast cancer screening. “Currently, mammography is the technique used most often… but since it gives only 2-D projection information of a 3-D anatomical structure, inaccuracies in screening often occur,” said James G. Nagy, a researcher and professor of...Read full article
