The MIOT Digital Mammography Suite – Zero Stress Zone

From the moment you enter the Suite, you are taken care of by an all-women team. Our expert Radiologist takes you through the procedure while the technologist guides you through the preparations.


The state-of-the-art 3D Digital Mammography system then takes over. It auto positions you within seconds even as the ergonomically designed handles and paddles mould your breasts to ensure minimal discomfort during the compression part of the procedure.

The system then senses your breast density and thickness customizes the radiation dose required and delivers an optimized X-ray spectra which penetrates the densest breast region – all in a space of 40 secs.
The Radiologist in the adjoining room is simultaneously viewing the crystal clear 3D images produced on a hi-resolution monitor. There are no films to check as with conventional machines & no need for you to wait.
You are free to go!
“As one of our patients, Mrs. Aruna Govind* said, ‘It was so fast and painless that it was over before I knew it. I had my results and diagnosis in hand within 15 minutes”
If the Radiologist has any suspicions of abnormality, you may have to wait for a few quick and stress free procedures that could take an additional 30 minutes. The system with its enhanced features highlights areas of unusual blood flow patterns should there be cause for suspicion. It can identify the precise location and confirm the nature of the lesion with 100% accuracy, all in the same sitting.
This leaves you free to seek further treatment, in the shortest possible time.
You leave with a conclusive diagnosis & clear direction. Without the Trauma.

Growing incidence

Breast cancer is no longer the story of a disease affecting a distant stranger. We all know someone who has fought the disease: a family member, a friend, a colleague.

Early detection and treatment is the way to beat the disease. At MIOT, we have integrated the cutting-edge 3D Digital Mammography System into our treatment process for exactly this purpose – to save as many precious lives as we can

Advantage of 3D Digital Mammography @ MIOT

People behind the machine make all the difference
Our team of experienced Radiologists and technologists have been specifically trained on the intricacies of this advanced system, its features and technology. Their hands-on expertise allows us to give you results that are fast, accurate and conclusive.


Image clarity with built-in safety
The unique modality which senses breast density and thickness and adjusts radiation doses accordingly makes the system extremely safe and reliable. It results in radiation doses that are 30-50% less than standard mammography even as it ensures excellent image clarity.

No hidden surprises with Breast Tomosynthesis
This state-of-the-art 3D Imaging technique uses a low-dose, single X-ray sweep of 9 exposures that separates tissue layers, thereby reducing overlapping of structures. Images taken from various angles are put together to create detailed 3D images which detect cancers even less than 1 cm. This is quite unlike 2D mammograms which have a single film where overlapping tissues do not reveal the whole picture.


Ideal across sizes
Since it delivers consistent image clarity across tissue layers, the system is specially suitable for women with dense breasts who often have to undergo repeated screenings for a conclusive result elsewhere.

Eliminates doubt instantly
If the Radiologist suspects an abnormality, contrast enhanced spectral mammography can be taken up in the same suite. The patient will be administered an intravenous injection of iodine and the mammography repeated. Should there be cause for suspicion, the system will highlight areas of unusual blood flow patterns and even detect the exact location of the lesion – all within 10 minutes.

Trauma free biopsy
If a lesion is located, you will no longer have to undergo a painful, invasive biopsy where results may be delayed and inconclusive. The system can be switched to a stereotactic biopsy mode and a simple biopsy done by correct positioning of the patient and lesion. The nature of the lesion is instantly confirmed, allowing for immediate treatment, if necessary.

Single window clearance saves time and costs
Since the 3D images produced by the system give conclusive information for diagnosis and further treatment, patients save time and costs on ‘call backs’ and additional tests such as ultrasound and biopsies.
