Mammography news In a recent announcement, Margaret W. Niedland Breast Center at Jupiter Medical Center said it has acquired two systems providing high quality breast imaging solutions. The facility now is offering breast tomosynthesis and positron emission mammography (PEM); both technologies will significantly help in earlier detection of breast cancer.

Margaret W. Niedland Breast Center became the only facility in Palm Beach and Martin County that provides breast tomosynthesis for its patients. This technology generates 3D images of the breast, with high quality, helping in accurate and earlier detection of breast cancer. PEM, on the other hand, is provided for the first time to the patients in Palm Beach and Martin. The technology is able to detect the smallest breast tumors. This capability means higher cancer detection rate and higher cure rate.

Lee Fox, M.D., chief of radiology at Jupiter Medical Center, said “These are key additions to our arsenal in the fight against breast cancer,” adding “As a truly comprehensive breast center, offering every diagnostic modality now available enables us to customize the best approach for patients’ individual needs.”

Dr. Fox continued “Breast tomosynthesis is extremely useful, especially for screening women who have dense breast tissue. On a traditional digital mammogram, dense breast tissue appears white and can hide masses, such as cancer. Breast tomosynthesis overcomes this obstacle and has been proven to provide an 8 percent increase in breast cancer detection with a 25 percent decrease in callback rates to find those cancers.”
