Dual-CZT detector MBI demonstrates a marked improvement in sensitivity when compared with single-head MBI and scintimammography for small tumours.
Breast Density is quantified into four categories of increasing Density.
With increasing Density, there is a decreasing level of Sensitivity with Mammography, as seen below.
The role of MBI has been directed to imaging Dense Breast Tissue (Heterogeneous and Extremely Dense Breasts).
MBI has proven to be highly Sensitive at detecting Cancers in this group of women.
Survival is considerably improved for women diagnosed with smaller tumours than those with larger tumours.
Dual CZT detectors ensure visualisation of small lesions compared with other systems.
The role of MBI has been directed to imaging dense breast tissue--categories 3 and 4 (Heterogeneous and Extremely dense breasts). Mammograms in dense breasts have limited sensitivity. MBI has proven to be highly sensitive at detecting cancers in this group of women.
MBI technology overcomes the limitations of mammography in dense breast tissue, allowing for early detection of small tumours before they become palpable.
