Synthesized 2D Images From DBT Scans May Be Comparable To Digital 2D Images From Mammography, Study Suggests.

Aunt Minnie (7/3, Yee) reports 2D images “synthesized from digital breast tomosynthesis (DBT) scans are comparable to digital 2D images acquired with mammography for evaluating breast density, according to a study” published in the American Journal of Roentgenology. The article suggests that “the finding is good news for women with dense tissue because a DBT exam with synthesized 2D images exposes them to less radiation.”
