Breast tomosynthesis

Breast tomosynthesis is a 3D technique, which I believe will change the screening of breast cancer. This technique is able to produce 3D images of the breast, instead of 2D projection images available in mammography. 3D imaging can unfold small lesions, such as micro-calcification and give a better understanding of the 3D shape of the lesion. Furthermore, it is possible that in the future compression will be less than in the mammography and dose will be comparable.
