DECTRIS's Hybrid Photon Counting (HPC) technology can be used in breast imaging as a standard screening method, such as full-field digital mammography (FFDM), a diagnostic method like Breast-CT, or a technique used for both, such as digital breast tomosynthesis (DBT). Every breast imaging modality needs the highest sensitivity to obtain the best image quality for the lowest radiation dose.
FFDM is the standard screening method. See how HPC technology offers the best image quality to improve the sensitivity and lower the radiation dose. Read more
Efforts focus on increasing examination sensitivity and specificity - both essential for efficient detection and patient dose reduction - beyond FFDM’s limits. Read more
Perhaps the most promising approach to improving upon FFDM results is the combination of a DBT acquisition with a dual-energy technique to obtain time-resolved information on contrast-enhanced digital mammography (CEDM) Read more
