New York, NY, November 12, 2015 --(PR.com)-- "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

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.
