Dr. Vasileiadi-Drakotou and the staff of Health Medicine Imaging share with you their impressions from the new 3D mammogram Planmed Clarity 3D.

"Ygeia Iatriki Apeikonisi", wanting to offer the women of our wider region the most innovative techniques and high level services for the early diagnosis of breast cancer, installed the 1st in Thessaly Digital 3D Mammograph of Tomosynthesis of the pioneering construction company Planmed 3D Finland. This is a machine that is particularly friendly to women, awarded for its design, with ergonomic design and details that allow to facilitate the examination for both the examinee and the operator.

So we went from the simple 2-mammogram, to the 3D Digital Mammogram 3D Tomosynthesis of the pioneer construction company Planmed Finland Clarity and to the 3D imaging of the breasts with 1 mm incisions, increasing the ability to detect aggressive cancers by 41%.
Dr. Elena Vasileiadi-Drakotou MD PhD

In 3D mammography during the examination a part of the machine moves taking multiple images. These images are processed with special software so that multiple incisions of a thickness of one millimeter are obtained in each breast. Thus the different structures and lesions of the breast are depicted in different sections and do not cover each other but stand out and are more easily recognized. In the picture below we see three different structures - lesions that are located at three different levels of the breast.

The best weapon we have at the moment against breast cancer is early diagnosis. And this is achieved better and better with the development of imaging methods. Plain mammography has been replaced by digital and now 3D digital, increasing the ability to detect cancer and shifting the time of diagnosis to a more early stage, which is very important for the course of the disease.
