Tomosynthesis for breast cancer screening

Published:September 18, 2015DOI:https://doi.org/10.1016/j.clinimag.2015.09.014

      Abstract

      Breast tomosynthesis, a three-dimensional x-ray based breast imaging technology, has been available for clinical use in the United States since 2011. In this paper we review the literature on breast cancer screening with this new technology including where gaps in knowledge remain.
