The field of medicine has been improved by technology in the departments of detections, screening, and treatment of cancer. Evidently, the early detection of cancer leads to most of the patients being treated and increases the chance of them recovering fully. Most women in the world are commonly affected by breast cancer. With the increasing number of women suffering from breast cancer, the screening technology keeps advancing with the 3D mammograms being the latest certified method of screening cancer. Thanks to these advancements in the medical field, many women have been able to fight breast cancer at an early age hence living longer lives happily. The 3D mammography stands out over other types of screening since it creates three-dimensional images when screening the breast. Since the three-dimensional images Can be manipulated and observed in all angles, the radiologists can easily detect cancer cells. The detection of breast cancer at an early stage is therefore successful in most women who undergo thus tests. Here are some of the benefits of 3D mammography.
Compared to traditional methods of breast cancer screening which only take two views of the breast, 3D mammography creates detailed images which improves breast cancer detection. 3D mammography has been proven to increase the detection of invasive forms of cancers that were difficult before. Thus is the reason why there are many cancer-free patients since the early detection of cancer has increased the number of successful treatment of cancer patients. With the use of traditional breast screening methods, there is usually a high rate of callbacks for additional screening. Since the invasive cancers were increasing secretly, the 3D mammography highly reduced the number of callbacks for additional screening. It can be a terrifying experience since the patient might think that they have breast cancer. Therefore, since the 3D mammography takes only one screening to detect everything, the patients avoid that anxiety they do not like.
It was difficult for women with heterogeneously large breasts to do cancer screening with traditional methods hence the 3D mammography have become beneficial since they can still detect any cancer despite the size of breasts.It has been proven that breast cancer attacks mostly women with dense breasts. Despite the dense breasts, the 3D mammography us able to tell a mass of growing tumor from the breasts tissue, hence cancer can be detected. Radiologists are able to conduct cancer screening safely and detect the cancer cells. The use of 3D mammography reduces the exposure of patients to radiation compared to the traditional mammogram. Lastly, it increases the chances of cancer survivors since the cancer is detected early.
