The field of medicine has been improved by technology in the departments of detections, screening, and treatment of cancer. It has been proven that when cancer is detected early enough, a patient can be treated to fully recovery. Most women in the world are commonly affected by breast cancer. The 3D mammograms are the latest medically certified methods of screening cancer with the aim of cutting the increasing number of people suffering from cancer. Thanks to these advancements in the medical field, many women have been able to fight breast cancer at an early age hence living longer lives happily. 3D mammography creates three-dimensional images when screening the breast. Since the three-dimensional images Can be manipulated and observed in all angles, the radiologists can easily detect cancer cells. This enables the tests to detect the most form of cancers for women at an early stage. Some of the benefits of 3D mammograms have been discussed below.
One of the major benefits of using a 3D mammography is that it provides a detailed three dimensional images which improve the detection of breast cancer unlike the traditional methods which had two dimensional images. 3D mammography has been proven to increase the detection of invasive forms of cancers that were difficult before. The detection of the invasive forms of cancer at an early stage have resulted to an increase in successful treatments hence many patients getting healed. Patients who are screened using the traditional methods keep going back for additional screening since these methods do not fully detect the cancer cells. The 3D mammography has reduced the callbacks for additional screening since they are able to detect even the increasing number of invasive cancer. Many patients did not like the experience of being called back for additional screening since they feared that they might be having breast cancer. 3D mammography has helped patients to avoid such anxious and unpredictable moments.
3D mammography is also beneficial to women with large breasts since they are able to detect even tiny cancer cells despite the size of the breasts, unlike the traditional methods which proved quite difficult.Women with dense breasts are the ones at a higher risk of getting breasts cancer. It is therefore easy to detect the growth of tumors since the 3D mammography can tell them from the dense breasts. Radiologists are able to conduct cancer screening safely and detect the cancer cells. With 3D mammography, patients are not exposed to radiation so much like in traditional screening methods. The cancer is detected early when using 3D mammography hence the increase of cancer survivors.
