DBT’s Benefits Vary Between US And Europe, Research Indicates.

Aunt Minnie reports a new meta-analysis published in the Journal of the National Cancer Institute “has reaffirmed the value of digital breast tomosynthesis (DBT) for breast screening, with DBT detecting more cancers with fewer recalls.” However, “DBT’s effect varied significantly between the U.S. and Europe.” The study found the cancer detection rate with DBT “was higher in studies from Europe, perhaps due to the longer intervals between screens in Europe, which meant that tomosynthesis caught more cancers.”
