Tomosynthesis: Should it Be Integrated into Screening and Clinical Routine Imaging?
Digital breast tomosynthesis (DBT) is a new and promising technique for breast imaging based on a full-field digital mammography (FFDM) platform. It was more than 15 years ago that this modality was first presented as a promising technique for breast imaging, having the potential to improve specificity and early detection of breast cancer . DBT has been investigated in several clinical settings during the last few years [2–4]. Some studies focused on the great potential that tomosynthesis might have in breast cancer screening.
