Special Technologies Available at Sheba
3D Metabolic Imaging and Risk is an innovative method of optical imaging. Intended for use as a screening tool, 3D MIRA is non-invasive, uses no ionizing radiation, and is a comfortable procedure. It is particularly beneficial for women with dense breast tissue who are not good candidates for mammography.
Sentinel node sampling is an advanced surgery that removes only a minimal number of lymph nodes for examination. This speeds up recovery and reduces the long-term morbidity rate.
Revolutionary techniques for breast reconstruction include the skin-sparing mastectomy and the “micro-vascular tissue flap,” leading to reconstructed breasts with a more natural appearance.
Focused Ultrasound (FUS) which is currently in an experimental phase at Sheba, destroys the breast tumor by heating it with ultrasound waves. This non-invasive technology does not harm surrounding normal tissue.
