New York/Stuttgart –Digital Breast Tomosynthesis, recently published by Thieme, is a timely introduction to a significant technological advance in breast cancer imaging. This state-of-the-art guide explains the technique of digital breast tomosynthesis (DBT), describes results from available clinical studies, offers recommendations for the use of DBT in routine practice, and discusses the latest developments and possible future trends in DBT.

“As technical refinements continue, and data on sensitivity and specificity validate tomosynthesis, this well-written book will be a valuable resource. It is a pleasure to read and, especially, to lose oneself voyaging through the many beautifully prepared teaching cases that provide a virtual clinical experience.” – From the Foreword

Key Features:

  • Presents 45 superbly illustrated case reports showcasing the application of DBT to clinical practice
  • Includes high-quality images from the various modalities in breast imaging: 2D mammography, DBT, and ultrasound, to enable comparison of their strengths and limitations
  • Provides video clips of the DBT data set for most cases on the Thieme MediaCenter

Authoritative and up to date, this volume is essential for radiology practitioners, residents, and fellows who wish to learn about the potential of DBT and stay at the forefront of technological developments in their field. The wealth of clinically relevant information is useful for any radiologist considering the establishment of DBT as a new imaging tool in their practice.
