Cassling and Siemens Healthineers have partnered to bring a unique women’s health experience to the October 6th Susan G. Komen Nebraska MORE THAN PINK Walk at Omaha’s Baxter Arena.
OMAHA, Neb. – September 25, 2019 – The public is invited to see innovative 3D breast ultrasound and 3D mammography technology during the Susan G. Komen Nebraska MORE THAN PINK Walk at the Baxter Arena on Sunday, October 6.
The 3D equipment will be on board an 18-wheel Mobile Mammography Truck outfitted by Siemens Healthineers. Cassling, an Omaha-based imaging equipment vendor and advanced partner of Siemens Healthineers, wants to educate the general public, patients and healthcare professionals about breast health options and the benefits of automated 3D breast ultrasound and 3D mammography.
Each year, one in eight American women is diagnosed with breast cancer. Many of these women have dense breast tissue, which correlates with a higher breast cancer risk. Dense breasts can also make it more difficult for a standard mammogram to spot tumors.
According to Kyle Salem, PhD, president of Cassling, 3D mammography is the gold standard for breast cancer screening, but it’s not the only tool available.
“A newer exam, automated 3D breast ultrasound, is a proven method to detect abnormalities between layers of dense tissue,” Salem said. “It’s a supplemental test alongside a 3D mammogram, ideal for women with dense breast tissue. It provides greater detail of breast anatomy, potentially increasing the detection of early stage cancers.”
Many patients are familiar with traditional handheld ultrasound, but the automated 3D breast ultrasound onboard the mammo truck is a little different. Also known as an Automated Breast Volume Scanner (ABVS), the system doesn’t require a sonographer to hold the ultrasound transducer or apply pressure to the breast. Instead of manual compression, it features automated acquisition, reducing operator variability and enabling consistent and reproducible results. This provides unique views of a woman’s anatomy and creates clear 3D images to help physicians make confident assessments.
In addition to ABVS, the mammo truck will showcase the MAMMOMAT Revelation, a 3D mammography system that utilizes the widest 3D angle on the market at 50 degrees. The size of the angle is important because it helps to capture more anatomy and therefore more detail of what’s happening inside the breast.
Interested in learning more about 3D breast ultrasound and seeing it in action at the MORE THAN PINK walk?
