    Digital Breast Tomosynthesis – Benefits over 2D Mammogram

    Cytecare is the first hospital in Karnataka to introduce Digital Breast Tomosynthesis (popularly known as 3D-Mammography) for women.

    Digital mammography captures a single image of the breast and converts them to computer images. This digital conversion makes it easier for detection of any abnormalities, since the image can be zoomed in and out, and certain areas of interest can be highlighted as required.

    Digital Breast Tomosynthesis can capture multiple images of the breast at different angles and these images are combined into a 3D image on a computer. This method of using a 3D mammogram has a greater accuracy of detection of breast cancer that may sometimes escape more traditional methods. Hence, digital breast tomosynthesis provides the advantage of enabling earlier detection of cancer.

    Cancer prevention and screening

    Digital Breast Tomosynthesis features & benefits include

    3D reconstruction of entire breast tissue volume viewed as sequential slices
    Reduced interference from breast tissue overlap
    Superior evaluation of masses, areas of architectural distortion, and asymmetries
    Improved diagnostic accuracy (p < 0.001), particularly for younger women, dense breasts, and smaller lesions
    Decreased false-positive results directly translate into less patient anxiety
    Decreased costs for additional diagnostic examinations (including ultrasound and biopsies) due to unnecessary recalls
    Improved detection of multicentric and bilateral breast cancers

    Addition of DBT for breast cancer screening ultimately reduces the associated mortality and morbidity. Digital Breast Tomosynthesis offers maximum benefits for densely glandular breasts and for younger women. This has a large impact on decreasing the number of women undergoing unnecessary recalls or biopsies & plays a vital role in alleviating anxiety in women opting for screening tests.

    3D mammography has been shown to reduce the percentage of missed cancers by 15% . More recent studies show about 30% increased 3D mammography sensitivity and specificity compared to 2D Mammography with a recalls reduction in screening by approximately 40% . The x-ray dose of 3D mammography is comparable to that of a 2D Mammogram. Therefore, the cumulative dose of the combined screening is still below the FDA-regulated limit and found to be safe and effective for patient use.
