3 d乳房x光检查


A mammogram is a low-dose X-ray image of the breast that helps doctors detect abnormalities in breast tissue. 虽然, the mammogram cannot detect if the abnormalities are cancer, it can detect if you need to seek further treatment. Now, thanks to 3D mammograms, doctors are capable of detecting cancer more accurately.


Experts recommend that women get regular mammogram screenings based on their age and health history, as one out of eight women will develop breast cancer in her lifetime. Detecting breast cancer can increase the five-year survival rate to almost 100%.


2D的区别是什么 & 3 d乳房x光检查?

用二维乳房x光检查, two x-rays are taken of each breast, 从上到下, and side to side while the breast is compressed. The breast is composed of fatty tissues, 血管, 乳导管, 和韧带, which can make it difficult to diagnose any abnormalities due to the compressed tissues overlapping. With 3D mammograms, physicians are able to view the many layers and angles within the breast tissue. The images of a 3D mammogram are more clear, as the doctor can view each slice that was taken.
