Abstract

Contrast-enhanced digital mammography (CEDM) is a revolutionary technique in breast imaging that uses contrast-enhanced recombined images for the assessment of tumour angiogenesis, in a similar manner as magnetic resonance imaging (MRI). CEDM is the only imaging modality that provides contrast-enhanced images, which are similar to MRI and complement it with the morphological information obtained from the high-resolution, low-energy image that is comparable to full-field digital mammography (FFDM).
