Breast-specific gamma imaging showed a higher sensitivity and specificity compared with breast ultrasound in assessing patients with vague mammogram results, according to a study. BSGI also proved more accurate in detecting malignancies, high-risk lesions and benign lesions, a researcher said. The method could serve as a viable and cost-similar alternative to ultrasound or MRI for breast assessment when mammography results are inconclusive, the researcher said.
