Digital Breast Tomosynthesis

Digital breast tomosynthesis is a state-of-the-art 3-D breast imaging technology. Compared to standard digital mammography, which uses X-rays to shoot two angles of the breast, DBT takes a series of images from different angles, creating a three-dimensional image.

Research findings have shown digital breast tomosynthesis, or DBT, increases cancer detection rates by 20 - 40 percent, and the recall rate for screening patients is reduced by 25 - 30 percent.

While DBT is acceptable for all patients, it is most beneficial for:

  • individuals who are at high risk for breast cancer, either by genetic predisposition or by family/personal risk factors
  • women who have dense breast tissue
  • women who are undergoing their first mammogram
