New 3D Mammography Software Hailed as Major Breakthrough

June 5, 2008 – Doctors at the Louisiana Immersive Technologies Enterprises (LITE) complex Lafayette. LA, recently met with Laszlo Tabar, M.D., who some call the “Father of Mammography,” to further refine the synergies of 3D technology as it can relate to imaging microscopic specimens of breast cancers and certain types of benign breast disease.

Breast radiologist, Robert Lapidus, M.D., of the Women’s Imaging Centre in Lafayette collaborated with doctors at LITE, including researcher Aashish Chaudhary and Dirk Reiners, M.D., to develop a new software program that can reportedly display the sub gross microscopic anatomy of malignant, as well as benign, breast conditions in 3D so that medical professionals can have a better understand the variants of normal breast tissue as well as the different types of breast cancer.

Dr. Lapidus got the idea to contact LITE about developing the software after hearing Dr. Tabar speak at a March conference in Chile. He contacted Carolina Cruz-Neira, M.D. at LITE to form the development team.

“This collaboration with Dr. Lapidus and LITE researchers will have a monumental impact on the way breast disease is taught to physicians around the world,” Dr. Tabar said. “Using this technique will improve communication amongst all team members that treat breast disease including radiologists, surgeons, pathologists and medical oncologists. We are talking about a global issue.”
