Abstract

OBJECTIVE:

The purpose of this article is to discuss facilitators of and barriers to future implementation of contrast-enhanced mammography (CEM) in the United States.

CONCLUSION:

CEM provides low-energy 2D mammographic images analogous to digital mammography and contrast-enhanced recombined images that allow assessment of neovascularity similar to that offered by MRI. The utilization of CEM in the United States is currently low but could increase rapidly given the many potential indications for its clinical use.

KEYWORDS:

contrast-enhanced digital mammography; contrast-enhanced mammography; contrast-enhanced spectral mammography
