Abstract (en)

[origin: EP0885616A1] The invention relates to the use of intravenous contrast agents for projection mammography and novel devices for carrying out projection mammography. The invention therefore relates to the use of intravenous contrast agents for producing a diagnostic medium for projection mammography. With the additional intravenous administration of contrast agent, projection mammography attains a sensitivity comparable to the most modern methods, such as magnetic resonance tomography (MRT) while having a wider range of applications and avoiding the cost of MRT. This novel method is simple and can be carried out without special inconvenience for the patients. It a) considerably improves sensitivity for demonstrating focal lesions in the mammae and b) provides additional information on the character of previously detected lesions.
