Electrical impedance mammography is a non-invasive, safe method of mammary glands examination. The examination is carried out with a multi-frequency electrical impedance mammograph MEM.
Electrical impedance mammography makes it possible to:
- Visually assess anatomical landmarks at various depth of scanning (figure 1). The obtained images correspond to cross-sections of the breast, which are parallel to the chest.
- Determine the type of the breast structure (juvenile, reproductive, pre-menopausal, post-menopausal).

- Determine the indices of mean, minimal and maximal electrical conductivity of breast at various depth of scanning in a specific area and carry out comparison with the norm.
- Diagnose different types of mastopathy (figures 2, 3)

- Diagnose solitary and multiple cysts of mammary glands.
- Diagnose mammary fibroadenoma (figure 4)
