Dual-Energy Contrast-Enhanced Spectral Mammography: expanding the Frontiers on Suspicious Breast Microcalcifications on Conventional Mammography
Dual-energy contrast-enhanced spectral mammography (DE-CESM) opens a new vision towards the diagnosis of suspicious microcalcifications
of breasts, due to an easy and reliable correlation between conventional and contrast-enhanced subtracted mammograms. The additional information given by enhancement allows a better prediction of the outcomes of histology, as well as highlighting the cancer extent for better pre-operative planning.
