The Breast Pathology Center is the first in Spain to incorporate this radiological technique.
Digital mammography has been “improved” by incorporating a new technology – tomosynthesis. It consists of simultaneously making tomographic cuts of the breast, in addition to normal mammography.Like a scanner with very fine, 1-millimeterthick,cuts that make it possible to prevent tissue overlap, similar to a 3D mammogram that is especially useful in dense breasts.
Tomosynthesis increases the sensitivity and specificity of mammography, significantly reducing indications for unnecessary biopsies thanks to this technique. The latest studies have shown an increase in the detection rate of breast cancer thanks to the use of this technology.
