Digital tomosynthesis, or 3D mammography, has emerged as an effective breast imaging tool. 3D mammography combines conventional 2-dimensional mammogram images with additional 3-dimensional views. This enables enhanced views of breast tissue and research suggests 3D mammography offers several benefits over conventional 2D mammography.
Improved Cancer Detection Rate & Reduced Recall Rate
Numerous studies have shown the benefit of 3D mammography over conventional 2D mammography. Both prospective and retrospective trials have shown a significant increase in cancer detection and a decrease in recall rate with 3D mammography.
