Breast Imaging Technology - Breast CT Scanning

Dedicated breast CT is a new imaging technology that is currently under clinical trial status at Emory, one of three centers in the world offering this breast CT imaging technology. This technology allows doctors to view the breast three dimensionally in high-resolution. Unlike a mammogram, the breast CT does not compress the breast, instead it hangs pendant and the camera moves around it. One breast CT scan combines the information of 300 mammograms and has the potential to improve detection of dangerous cancerous lesions and decrease the number of false positives.
