Breast ultrasound is a method that examines the composition of the breast, any potential existence of lesions and the area of the armpits, reproducing representative images on multiple levels. It is an additional examination of mammography, especially to patients that have a dense breast tissue.
Furthermore, this mammogram is recommended to people that should avoid radiation exposure such as:
- Individuals under the age of 30
- Pregnant women
The automated ultrasound is part of an innovative method in the sector of breast ultrasounds. It provides an automated volumetric study of the breasts in three different levels and useful information to surgeons in relation to the depth of a lesion, the distance from the nipple and the its extend to the breast. The examination is performed automatically, it is systemised, it provides a three dimensional depiction of the breast in real time and allows the possibility to study the results of the examination without the presence of the patient. Furthermore, it only lasts 15 minutes, the patient is not exposed to any radiation and the quality of the images that are produced is high, allowing a detailed and complete check and analysis.
Through this method any lesions that could not have otherwise been detected through a mammogram or a simple ultrasound, are now visible and the results of the examination can be studied a number of times without the patient having to be present.
