Conant, a pioneer in the development of digital mammography, is a leader in research on the use and benefits of early mammography screening and on the role of multimodality breast imaging.
Comparision between two-dimensional synthetic mammography reconstructed from digital breast tomosynthesis and full-field digital mammography for the detection of T1 breast cancer.
Conant is a fellow of the Society of Breast Imaging and a member of a multitude of professional organizations, including the American Roentgen Ray Society, National Association of University Radiologists, International Digital Mammography Development Group, and the Radiological Society of North America.
Conant has received grants from the National Institutes of Health to compare standard surgical biopsy with digital mammography and stereotactic core breast biopsy.
Tomosynthesis, the latest in digital mammography, is a form of 3D mammography that works by using 3D technology to capture multiple images of the breast from different angles. Unlike conventional mammography, which produces a flat image, tomosynthesis produces a more detailed, multi-layered image of the breast tissue.
