Contrast enhanced spectral mammography (CESM) is a new technology, gaining acceptance throughout Europe and the USA, but only recently introduced to the UK. GE Healthcare is currently the only UK vendor of CESM, using the brand name Senobright. In this article, we will explore the theory behind the technology and the practicalities of performing the test. A brief literature overview is provided, with references for further reading. Real-life examples show representative images obtained with CESM and highlight the added value of using contrast in these cases.
