((
Hermia Kamalodeen is a breast cancer patient who has just undergone a new test called a Miraluma Scan.
Compared to a mammogram she says the test was a piece of cake. HERMIA KAMALODEEN/CANCER PATIENT: YOU JUST KEEP LYING THERE. NOBODY IS PUSHING YOU OR PULLING YOU AROUND-- WHICH IS FAR BETTER THAN THE OLD MAMMOGRAM.
Her doctors at New York's Coney Island Hospital are using the miraluma scan because they are concerned that cancer had returned to her right breast.
If the Miraluma test is negative it will spare Hermia more surgery. THIS IS THE AREA IN QUESTION-- THIS IS THE RIGHT BREAST.
When cancer is present it shows up as a dark spot on the miraluma scan.
For Hermia the news is good...the breast is clear. HER OTHER BREAST IS CLEAN. HER LYMPH NODES --BOTH SIDES AROUND WHICH ARE CLEAN. SO, WE CONFIDENTLY WILL READ THIS AS NO RECURRENCE AT THIS TIME."
The Miraluma Scan is the first nuclear medicine test approved by the F-D-A- for breast imaging.
It uses a radioactive tracer which is injected...if there are cancer cells present the radioactive tracer will be picked up by them and appear as a dark spot on a picture of the breast. standup
One thing women need to understand the Miraluma test will not replace mammography it's really to be used in women who have dense breasts.
Those are breasts that make cancer detection by mammography alone very difficult. DR. HEMALATHA RAO/NUCLEAR MEDICINE SPECIALIST/CONEY ISLAND HOSPITAL: THERE COULD BE SOME HIDING BEHIND THE DENSE BREAST WHICH YOU ARE UNABLE TO DETECT ON A MAMMOGRAM YOU CAN BE TESTED BY THE BEST MAMMOGRAPHER AND MISS THE LESION.
Dr. Rao is careful to point out that the test is to be used along with a clinical examination and a mammogram because it cannot find a lump smaller than a centimeter. She also says the miraluma test itself does not diagnose breast cancer...only a biopsy can do that.
But if all indicators suggest there is no cancer a breast biopsy can be avoided and the test can be repeated again in three to six months. NOW THAT WE HAVE THIS TEST THERE'LL BE A SIGNIFICANT DROP IN THE NUMBER OF BIOPSIES WHICH ARE DONE ON SUSPICIOUS MAMMOGRAMS.
Right now only a few hospitals are using the miraluma scan...but now that the test is approved, more institutions will likely begin to incorporate it into their fight against breast cancer.
