Electromagnetic Imaging Passes the Test in Breast

In a study conducted at the Dartmouth-Hitchcock Medical Center researchers found that electromagnetic (EM) breast imaging increased in image contrast when comparing abnormal (benign and malignant) and normal breast tissue.

The study, Electromagnetic Breast Imaging: Results of a Pilot Study in Women with Abnormal Mammograms, led by Steven P. Poplack, M.D., aimed to assess quantitatively the inherent contrast of EM properties that can be imaged. Clinicians examined 150 participants, ranging from ages 35–81. The results found that EM breast examinations provide statistical evidence of a mean increase in image contrast of 150– 200 percent between abnormal (benign and malignant) and normal breast tissue.
