Digital breast tomosynthesis
Published September 2010 | ISBN 978 1 84463 071 4
Digital breast tomosynthesis (DBT) is a newly developed form of three dimensional (3D) imaging with the potential to improve the accuracy of mammography by reducing tissue overlap.
The Digital Breast Tomosynthesis Working Party was set up to examine the current status of DBT technology, to advise on whether this technology should be considered for use in the NHS Breast Screening Programme and, if so, to identify areas where more detailed research is needed to assess DBT's clinical utility. This is the report produced by the working party.
