+3D Mammogram

Conventional mammogram is a 2D image.  The diagnostic power is limited by overlapping tissues.  3D mammogram captures multiple slices of the breast, all at different angles. Multiple images of the breast are reconstructed into 1mm thin slice of the breast.  The radiologist is then able to review the reconstructed images, one thin slice at a time. 

 

With this technology, overlapping glandular tissue can be removed and cancers can be more accurately diagnosed. It has been approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) of United States as a screening and diagnostic tool for breast cancer.

How does 3D compare with 2D mammogram?

 

 1.   Diagnostic power 

           -3D mammogram gives more information by uncovering abnormalities from overlapping tissues,

           increases invasive cancer detection rate by 40-51%

 

 2.   Less Additional view

           -3D mammogram can eliminate the need for additional spot compression view.  This avoids unnecessary

           radiation, compression and anxiety

 

 3.   Radiation dose 

           -3D mammogram is comparable to that of 2D digital mammogram and well below FDA safety level 

           (Radiation dose of conventional 2D mammogram is much higher)

 

 4.   Less Discomfort 

           -Less compression force can be applied with 3D mammogram. Our C-View / Intelligent 2D system

           significantly reduces compression time (down to 3.75s for each view)

Fine Needle
Aspiration
(FNA)
  • Day procedure, no skin incision

  • For cytological analysis only, may need biopsy for further evaluation

  • Mainly for cystic lesion​

     

+ Breast

Biopsy

Core Biopsy
  • Day procedure under local anaesthesia

  • No skin incision

  • Aim at tissue sampling for histology.   It allows tumour marker analysis and to differentiate invasive or in-situ cancer​

Vacuum Assisted Biopsy/Excision
  • Minimally invasive procedure

  • Day procedure under local anaesthesia

  • Small skin wound, suture not necessary

  • Can remove lesion completely. 

  • Sampling size larger than core biopsy and fine needle aspiration, thus more accurate result

  • Can replace open surgery for removal of benign lesion such as fibroadenoma

 

+ Ultrasound Scan

 
Supersonic Aixplorer

Supersonic ultrasound model allows anatomical structures to be seen clearly and distinctly.  It enhances margin delineation and distinction of discrete tissue types.

 

It is also equipped with shear wave elastography, which is a real time color-coded elasticity map with objective measurement of tissue stiffness. 

 

Studies have shown that shear wave elastography can improve specificity of breast ultrasound mass assessment without compromising sensitivity.

Radiological Consultation

 
+Our Team

One-stop service provided by our specialists focused in breast imaging and intervention allows imaging studies and biopsy of suspicious area to be performed on the same day, which can minimize unnecessary anxiety of the patients and their families.

 

Patient privacy is ensured with areas restricted to ladies in our centre.  Tomosynthesis and mammogram are all performed by qualified female mammographers.  Female radiologist is available for all ultrasound studies, tissue biopsies, as well as minimally invasive breast procedures.
