Digital Breast Tomosynthesis at Ascot Central

05 February 2016

DBT image We are delighted to now offer a choice of traditional digital mammography and digital breast tomosynthesis (DBT) at our Ascot Central branch.


In brief

  • Digital tomosynthesis is the latest in breast imaging technology.
  • While a mammogram provides a 2D image of the breast, tomosynthesis creates highly detailed, multi-planar images.
  • Positioning is similar to that of a mammogram.
  • The resulting images provide the best possible view of all the breast tissue, with greater cancer detection across all ages and breast densities.
  • It has been proven to have a higher cancer detection rate and a reduced recall rate without any added risk or radiation to the patient.
