Digital breast tomosynthesis creates a 3d picture of the breast tomosynthesis is similar to a standard mammogram in that it uses x-ray technology and applies the same amount of pressure to the breast but rather than providing two views from top to bottom and side to side the 3d approach. Digital tomosynthesis dts imaging can be particularly useful for visualization of fine line orthopedic fractures, clear imaging around orthopedic hardware compared to a standard x-ray, head & neck trauma, lung screening and/or to pre-screen or to rule out the need for ct.
