Diagnosing the extent of disease is an important factor in treatment planning for breast cancer patients. Studies have demonstrated that CEDM may be an effective alternative to MRI, as they achieve comparable sensitivity. CEDM also provides the advantage of lower cost and shorter procedure time compared to breast MRI, and may be considered a viable option for patients requiring additional imaging to determine the extent of their disease for pre-surgical and treatment planning.
