I've been told I have dense breasts.Dense breast tissue makes it difficult to interpret a mammogram. In addition, to premenopausal women, dense tissue occurs in women going through hormone replacement therapy or those who have undergone radiation treatment. BSGI detects cellular changes—regardless of breast density—that a mammogram may miss.
I am a breast cancer survivor.Scar tissue, trauma or radiation therapy can be difficult to differentiate from tumors with mammography. BSGI can see hidden areas and reveal cancerous lesions.
My mammogram shows multiple areas of concern.Calcium deposits are frequently detected in mammography. While calcifications are benign, some suggest the presence of a malignancy. In such a case, further investigation is necessary.
I have breast implants.Implants can complicate image interpretation even with special compression views of the breast. Gamma imaging does require minimal compression of the breast and its detection of cancer is not hindered by implants. Pre-authorization from insurance should be obtained prior to having a gammagram.
