Background Breast compression is used in mammography to improve image quality and reduce radiation dose. However, the compression may lead to discomfort or pain for the women. Breast compression time is longer with digital breast tomosynthesis (DBT) than with digital mammography (DM). We aimed to explore breast compression parameters with DM and DBT. Material and Methods We used information from 16,832 women participating in the Tomosynthesis Trial in Bergen between January 2016 and April 2017…

Can Breast Compression Be Reduced in Digital Mammography and Breast Tomosynthesis?

TLDR
M Mammography and DBT acquisitions may be possible using half of the compression force used currently, with a significant and substantial reduction in perceived pain with no clinically significant change in breast thickness and tissue coverage.

Compression forces used in the Norwegian Breast Cancer Screening Program.

TLDR
A wide variation in applied compression force was observed between the breast centres in the Norwegian Breast Cancer Screening Program (NBCSP), which indicates a need for evidence-based recommendations for compression force aimed at optimizing the image quality and individualizing breast compression.

The effect of reduced breast compression in breast tomosynthesis: human observer study using clinical cases.

TLDR
Investigation of whether the compression force used with conventional mammography can be reduced with breast tomosynthesis (BT), without adversely affecting the visualisation of normal and pathological structures showed no evident difference in the image quality, indicating that BT may be performed with substantially less compression force compared with 2D mammography.

Effects of Reduced Compression in Digital Breast Tomosynthesis on Pain, Anxiety, and Image Quality.

TLDR
Investigation of the effects of reduced compression force on pain, anxiety and image quality in digital breast tomosynthesis (DBT) reduces anxiety and pain levels without compromising image quality.

Comparison of compression force & compressed breast thickness of Full-Field Digital Mammography and Combined FFDM plus Digital Breast Tomosynthesis when additional views considered

TLDR
Comparison of compression force & compressed breast thickness of Full-Field Digital Mammography and Combined FFDM plus Digital Breast Tomosynthesis when additional views considered.

Practitioner compression force variability in mammography: a preliminary study.

TLDR
For the first time, it has been practically demonstrated that practitioners vary in the amount of compression applied to breast tissue during routine mammography.

Can compression be reduced for breast tomosynthesis? Monte carlo study on mass and microcalcification conspicuity in tomosynthesis.

TLDR
Constant conspicuity implies that reduced compression would have a minimal effect on radiologists' performance, which suggests that there is justification for a measured reduction of breast compression for breast tomosynthesis, increasing the comfort of women undergoing the examination.
