Breast Tomosynthesis or Digital Mammography for Breast Cancer Screening?

Svahn, Tony LU (2011) 9th International Conference on Medical Physics In Medical Physics in the Baltic States p.53-56
Abstract
Screening mammography plays a key role in the early detection of breast cancer, however, estimates of sensitivities (48-88%) and specificities (82-98%) suggest that the diagnostic accuracy can be improved (1, 2, 3). Breast tomosynthesis (BT) is a 3D technique that is expected to improve breast cancer detection compared to screen-film and digital mammography DM). This work presents two clinical observer performance studies performed at Skane University Hospital, Malmo, Sweden, that investigates the diagnostic accuracy of BT compared to DM.
