The GE Senographe changes breast care forever, said Dr. Karina Bukhanov, Head of the Division of Breast Imaging and the Joint Department of Medical Imaging at Mount Sinai Hospital and University Health Network in Toronto.With the GE Senographe, we are experiencing fewer patient recalls and increased confidence in mammograms among our patients.In addition, we are performing exams in nearly half the time required for traditional film-based mammography systems, said Dr. Bukhanov.

Based on research studies and early clinical experience around the world, the GE Senographe holds the promise of better visibility of the breast, especially near the skin line, the chest wall, and in women with dense breast tissue.
The GE Senographe is the most extensively tested mammography system ever introduced, and its clinical benefits were evaluated at eight leading research hospitals in the U.S.
What makes the GE Senographe 2000D different from conventional systems are its digital capabilities and two important features : the acquisition workstation that displays a high quality image within ten seconds after an exposure, providing the technologist with quick verification of correct patient positioning ; and the review workstation that features a wide range of imaging enhancing and magnification tools.

"With film-based images, if the image is too dark, there is nothing that can be done about that," explains Dr. Karina Bukhanov, Head of Breast Imaging at Mount Sinai Hospital."With digital technology, we are able to manipulate the contrast to get a lot more information, based on the same dosage of radiation that the patient receives.This is one of the main advantages of digital technology."

"Overall, the change is going to be phenomenal," continues Dr. Bukhanov.In particular, the technology has the potential to revolutionize how medical professionals detect breast cancer.Dr. Bukhanov explains that the computer will automatically flag areas of concern as the images are taken.This is much like having a second radiologist, or a second pair of eyes, read the results, without having to invest that extra time or expense.While there are no conclusive studies to date to prove that digital mammography is better at spotting tumors than traditional ways, the general feeling among specialists is that computerized tools do provide a better way of analyzing x-ray images.As a result, it is anticipated that the enhanced image quality along with the computerized-aided image analysis should aid in earlier detection of early cancers.Since the field of digital mammography is so new, it is further anticipated that extensive research will be conducted on computerized mammography technologies and the impact they have on patient care at the Marvelle Koffler Breast Centre.
Dr. Bukhanov affirms that the technology is also particularly useful for taking images of dense breasts (which are usually those of younger women).Dense breasts tend to appear whitish and more difficult to analyze on traditional x-ray films, whereas with digital mammography the resulting images can be manipulated to maximize the contrast and the brightness so problems can be detected more readily.Dr. Bukhanov further notes that the digital equipment is also assisting radiologists in detecting lesions that are closer to the skin's surface.
