Tomosynthesis


Breast Tomosynthesis or 3D Mammography (now with low dose C-View technology) is a form of digital mammography where the images are obtained in thin slices when the machine acquires projections in an arc around your breast. You will not notice any difference when having the mammogram. The computer algorithm allows the radiologist to see the breast in a set of images that gets rid of the overlapping changes from adjacent tissue, a common cause for call back examinations, or false positive examinations. This unique acquisition allows subtle details of distortion to show up even in fatty tissue increasing sensitivity and specificity in all types of breast tissue, not just dense tissue.
