The expert in breast imaging spoke about the use of the technology, and why it is more effective than traditional mammograms.

Contrast-enhanced mammograms are more sensitive than traditional mammograms, as they are able to provide detail that typically requires an MRI.

In addition, the technology is much faster and more cost-effective than traditional mammograms. Though contrast-enhanced mammograms are not yet widely available, the technology is steadily improving breast cancer detection.

In an interview with CancerNetwork®, Mitva Patel, MD, a radiologist at The Ohio State University Comprehensive Cancer Center (OSUCCC) who specializes in breast imaging, discussed the use of contrast-enhanced mammograms and how the technology may advance breast imaging moving forward.
