What is Tomosynthesis Mammography? You can compare tomosynthesis to reading a book. Unlike 2D mammography, Tomosynthesis allows specialized breast radiologists to flip through 1 mm images of breast tissue to see through layers of dense tissue. This allows doctors to find smaller and potentially more curable cancers. Thanks to this technology early-stage cancer diagnosis has increased by 50 percent. Other benefits include decreased call back rates from screening, improved breast characterization of tumors, and fewer unnecessary biopsies or additional tests.
