The Philippines has the highest incidence rate of breast cancer in Asia. According to the 2015 Philippine Cancer Facts & Estimates, it is the number one cancer found in women, with the occurrence rising steeply at age 30.
In a bid to help in early diagnosis and treatment, Manila Doctors Hospital brings to the country and Southeast Asia the latest imaging innovation from Siemens Healthineers, the Mammomat Revelation.
Mammomat Revelation HD Breast Tomosynthesis system enables Manila Doctors to expand precision medicine, improve clinical operations, and increase patient satisfaction.
“Breast cancer is the most common cancer women are diagnosed with. Being able to see breast tissues and malignancies clearly with accuracy makes the difference in early detection and treatment,” said Manila Doctors Hospital president Elizabeth Dantes.
She added, “At Manila Doctors Hospital, being equipped with the latest technological trends to support our medical team is our top priority—a testament to our commitment to providing world-class care for our patients.”
Studies have shown that Asian women are known to have a higher proportion of dense breast tissue, thus the need for improved screening accuracy in a mammography system is essential.
The new Mammomat Revelation features a unique 50-degree HD Breast Tomosynthesis which allows physicians to achieve the highest depth resolution to get a more precise and clearer 3D view. Wider angle means more individualized compression tailored to the structure of each patient’s breast, making anatomical details clearly visible.
Taking of tissue sample through biopsies can be performed using this wide tomosynthesis angle.
Mammomat Revelation provides smart automated breast density measurements at the point of examination. This allows for personalized risk stratification, and necessary adjunct imaging exams can be triggered before the patient leaves. As tumor tissue can be difficult to distinguish from breast tissue, functional breast imaging with contrast enhanced mammography now expands the diagnostic options.
Patients also get to feel at ease during exams with the system’s intuitive Personalized Soft Compression technology which allows the breast compression process to be softened and the compression force automatically and individually adjusted.
“We are proud to be the first hospital in Southeast Asia to have Mammomat Revelation up and running. With the system’s innovative features combined with the comfort and ease it can give our patients, Manila Doctors Hospital is leading the way in the early detection breast cancer.” enthused Dantes.
