Mammogram | CESM

What is CESM?

CESM is a 2D mammogram (see our UltimateMamm®) performed if you have had an inconclusive mammogram or an abnormal ultrasound. It is a diagnostic procedure.

When Is It Used?

Our radiologist will determine if the exam is recommended. CESM is especially useful if you are at high risk for breast cancer and/or have dense breast tissue.

How It Works

CESM results showing the 4 images taken during the exam - low energy and re-combined.

CESM results showing the 4 images taken during the exam – low energy and re-combined.

CESM uses an injection of iodinated contrast (similar to a CT exam) to highlight areas with suspicious lesions and areas of unusual blood flow using subtracted imaging.

It combines four mammography views – two low-energy and two re-combined in the same position to provide clearer visualization. The resulting image shows only where contrast has pooled, indicating areas that are potentially cancerous.

Other Benefits

  • The exam takes less than seven minutes.
  • It reduces the chances of false-positive exam results.
  • The machine provides greater comfort and has a reduced noise level.
  • Delivers personalized and optimized radiation dose based on breast density. (See our Wisely Image pledge).

Where Does RMI Offer this Exam?
