Bangalore, 27th July 2018:   Breast cancer is one of the most common cancers affecting Indian women, and early diagnosis of the disease is imperative for better survival rate. Trivitron Healthcare, in association with Bangalore Baptist Hospital, has introduced 3D Tomosynthesis and Stereotactic guided Vacuum assisted Biopsy system in Karnataka.

 

3D Tomosynthesis is an advanced technology which takes less than 4 seconds to scan any abnormality in the breast. It removes overlapping, increases lesion visibility, helps to localize structures, reduces repeat studies, helps to detect cancer and improves the quality of patient care with painless mammogram procedures. The procedure has a 40% higher detection rate when compared to 2D mammogram.

 

Dr. Naveen Thomas, Director, Baptist Hospital, said, “The stereotactic guided vacuum assisted biopsy system helps in localizing and removing the lesion completely resulting in therapeutic treatment as well. The entire procedure is painless and improves the overall patient care.”

 

During the inauguration, Mr. R Sampath Raj, the Honourable Mayor of Bangalore said, “Across the world, breast cancer is the highest cause of cancer death in women. Early detection of breast cancer is the key to save lives. My humble request to all women above 40 years is to get their annual mammogram screening done as this will help them to detect breast cancer at an early stage.”

 

Commenting on this initiative, Mr. M. Brahadeesh, President - Imaging, Trivitron Healthcare, said, “Trivitron is committed to reduce the breast cancer deaths in India by improving mammography penetration in both urban and rural locations. […] We are proud to be associated with Baptist Hospital and are certain that this advanced mammography technology will save many lives in the coming years.”
