Contrast Enhanced Mammography
CEM, also known as Contrast Enhanced Mammography, is a specific form of mammogram that utilises contrast dye. This dye is administered into an arm vein to aid in the detection of specific types of breast cancer that may not be easily visible on a standard mammogram or ultrasound.
This form of medical imaging is used in place of an MRI of the breasts and is a much easier form of non-invasive imaging for the patient, as it offers a range of practical advantages. These include shorter exam time and no need to be in a confined space.
