LSG Imaging Announces Partnership with Siemens
LSG Imaging is the first in California and one of the first ten in the U.S. to offer the newest wide-angle 3D mammogram for earlier cancer detection. Siemens newest breast imaging technology was FDA approved in March of 2018.
Siemens Breakthrough MAMMOMAT Revelation system features personalized compression for a more comfortable exam.
LSG IMAGING, in Santa Monica and Beverly Hills is advancing the fight against breast cancer with innovative technology designed to overcome barriers to detection and compliance. “We chose MAMMOMAT Revelation because the wide-angle technology makes it easier to find even the smallest cancers earlier with greater accuracy,” said Ross Goldberg, one of the partners in LSG IMAGING. “We also see the system’s personalized compression helping women overcome any fear they might have because the MAMMOMAT Revelation exam has been proven to be more comfortable.”
The advantage of wide-angle, next-generation 3D mammography
MAMMOMAT Revelation, from Siemens Healthineers, is the next generation of 3D mammography (breast tomosynthesis). Its unique wide 50-degree angle, the industry’s highest depth resolution, captures more detail for extremely high-quality 3D images that increase diagnostic confidence and enable earlier detection of even subtle lesions.
MAMMOMAT Revelation is also the first mammography platform to provide automated breast density measurements at the point of examination. High breast density can increase the risk of developing cancer.
The comfort of personalized compression
Compression is key to getting an accurate mammogram. However, the associated discomfort and pain are key reasons why women avoid mammography exams. “It was important to us to remove any barrier that could stop a woman from getting the screening she needs,” said Dr. Goldberg. With MAMMOMAT Revelation’s Personalized Soft Compression, each woman gets exactly the right amount of compression for her breast type. The force is automatically adjusted for the greatest individual comfort without losing any accuracy.
“We are thrilled to bring this breakthrough technology to Los Angeles. When breast cancer is found early, the chances of survival are greatly improved. And MAMMOMAT Revelation is the best system to provide the quality images and patient experience to make early detection possible,” said Dr. Goldberg.
Dr. Goldberg also emphasized: “It is important to understand that this technology does not negate the need for breast ultrasound in women with dense breasts. There are still going to be cancers that can be visualized on ultrasound that are not visualized on breast tomosynthesis”.
