Digital tomosynthesis (pronounced toh-moh-sin-thah-sis) creates a 3-dimensional picture of the breast using x-rays digital tomosynthesis is approved by the us food and drug administration, but is not yet considered the standard of care for breast cancer screening because it is relatively new, it is available at a limited number of hospitals. Dtc exams cost a fraction of the cost of a chest ct exam, and even when the latter uses a low radiation dose, the radiation dose associated with a chest digital tomosynthesis exam is much lower. Digital chest tomosynthesis used as a screening tool for lung cancer shows comparable rates of detection to low-dose ct 1. Digital tomosynthesis is a technique of generating images of slices through the body using a general radiographic x-ray system with a direct digital radiography detector this is accomplished by obtaining a large, representative number of low-dose acquisitions across a range of projection angles of the x-ray tube.

Volumerad digital tomosynthesis volumerad provides multiple images of the anatomy in a single sweep at a low dose, including chest. Objectives the objective of this study was to evaluate the imaging capabilities of chest digital tomosynthesis (dt) as a screening method for the detection of artificial pulmonary nodules, and to compare its efficiency with that of ct. Tomosynthesis, also digital tomosynthesis, is a method for performing high-resolution limited-angle tomography at radiographic dose levels it has been studied for a variety of clinical applications, including vascular imaging, dental imaging, orthopedic imaging, mammographic imaging, musculoskeletal imaging, and chest.
