Computed Tomography Laser Mammography
Computed Tomography Laser
Mammography(CTLM) is the trademarkof Imaging Diagnostic Systems, Inc.(IDSI, USA) for its optical tomographic technique for female breast imaging.
medical imagingtechnique uses laserenergy in the near infrared region of the spectra, to detect angiogenesisin the breast tissue. It is optical molecular imaging for hemoglobinboth oxygenated and deoxygenated. The technology uses laser in the same way computed tomographyuses X-Rays, these beams travel through tissue and suffer attenuation.
A laser detector measures the intensity drop and the data is collected as the laser detector moves across the breast creating a tomography image.CTLM images show hemoglobin distribution in a tissue and can detect areas of Angiogenesis surrounding malignant tumors, that stimulate this angiogenesis to obtain nutrients for growth.
