Omega Hospitals has the latest Digital Mammography with Breast Tomosynthesis / 3D Mammography and Contrast Enhanced Mammography. This machine minimizes impact of overlapping breast tissue during imaging. It has greater accuracy in pinpointing size, shape and location of abnormalities. It will avoid unnecessary biopsies or additional tests and it has more chances of finding multiple breast tumors (occur in 15% of breast cancer patients). This mammography is also equipped with a digital receptor and a computer instead of a film cassette and allows faster and accurate stereotactic biopsy in both the sitting and recumbent positions (the first of its kind in India). More importantly, this ultra-modern digital mammogram reduces the dose of radiation by 50% and also has the ability to correct under- or over-exposed films without having to repeat mammograms.
The latest PET-CT scan machine which is being installed in the OMEGA Hospitals premises provides the best diagnostic modality to detect and stage cancer. The PET CT department is integrated with imaging and nuclear medicine departments so that online transfer of data is feasible for accurate treatment planning.
