A new X-ray technique could possibly revolutionize the detection of breast cancer, say an international team of researchers. The scientists responsible for this invention claim that this would allow 3D visualizations of the breast and help in early detection of tumors.
According to an article posted on MedIndia.com, the new technique will allow for a more precise view of the breast tissue. Currently 10%-20% of breast cancer cases are not identified with the widely used mammogram.
The research of this new 3D technology known as Analyser-Based X-ray Imaging (ABI), with high spatial resolution, will appear today in a Radiology journal.
