This book provides a comprehensive description of the screening and clinical applications of digital breast tomosynthesis (DBT) and offers straightforward, clear guidance on use of the technique. Informative clinical cases are presented to illustrate how to take advantage of DBT in clinical practice. The importance of DBT as a diagnostic tool for both screening and diagnosis is increasing rapidly. DBT improves upon mammography by depicting breast tissue on a video clip made of cross-sectional images reconstructed in correspondence with their mammographic planes of acquisition. DBT results in markedly reduced summation of overlapping breast tissue and offers the potential to improve mammographic breast cancer surveillance and diagnosis. This book will be an excellent practical teaching guide for beginners and a useful reference for more experienced radiologists.

Editorial Reviews

"This book is a very good introduction to DBT and in particular it provides an excellent source of case studies, which can be used as a teaching tool. For those more experienced in the use of DBT it serves as a good reference guide. I would recommend this book for both radiologists and radiographers." (Julie Carroll, RAD Magazine, March, 2017)"This is a great resource for anyone hoping to learn more about digital breast tomosynthesis, whether novice or expert. It covers the basics and the technical aspects of this emerging imaging modality, presents a complete review of the literature on the topic, and discusses the possible impact of this technique on the future of the field. The clinical cases and video clips are quite helpful and help readers get a feel for breast tomosynthesis." (Michael Sami Morrow, Doody''s Book Reviews, August, 2016)
