DIGITAL BREAST TOMOSYNTHESIS
Digital Breast Tomosynthesis or “3D” mammography is a new type of digital x-ray mammogram that creates 2D and 3D-like pictures of the breasts. This tool improves the ability of mammography to detect early breast cancers and decreases the number of women “called back” for additional tests for findings that are not cancers.
Digital mammography can legally be performed only in facilities that are certified, such as the Diagnostic Breast Center.
Breast ultrasound, also known as sonography or ultrasonography, is frequently used to evaluate breast abnormalities that are found with screening or diagnostic mammography or during a physician-performed clinical breast exam. Ultrasound allows significant freedom in obtaining images of the breast from almost any orientation. Ultrasound is excellent at imaging cysts, which are round, fluid-filled, pockets inside the breast. Additionally, ultrasound can often quickly determine if a suspicious area is in fact a cyst (almost always benign) or an increased density of solid tissue (dense mass), which may require a biopsy to determine if it is malignant (cancerous).
Dr. Kubek personally performs all of the ultrasound studies herself so that she, as the interpreting radiologist , can discuss all of the findings with each patient.
