Breast Cancer – Diagnostics – Tomosynthesis

Newly developed tomosynthesis (tomo = “layer”) takes 3D images, while classic mammography is only able to deliver two-dimensional images of the breast. This method is similar to that of the computed tomography: The X-ray tube takes multiple pictures from different angles. The information is then calculated by a software program to produce clear three-dimensional images throughout the breast.
