Digital breast tomosynthesis promises solutions to many of the problems currently associated with projection mammography, including elimination of artifactual densities from the superposition of normal tissues and increasing the conspicuity of true lesions that would otherwise be masked by superimposed normal tissue. We have investigated the performance of a novel tomosynthesis system in a clinical setup. The novel system uses 48 photon counting, orientation sensitive, linear detectors which… CONTINUE READING
