Abstract

Breast tomosynthesis is a continually improving tool for diagnostic radiologists. This update about tomosynthesis reviews the advantages of the technique both in patients with suspected or known disease and in screening, as well as its limitations, of which the dose of radiation is the most important. The more recent advent of synthesised mammography, computer-assisted detection, and tomosynthesis-guided biopsy have helped to reduce the dose of radiation used and have improved the diagnostic performance of tomosynthesis, so they are also discussed in this review.

Keywords:
Digital mammography
Tomosynthesis
Mean glandular dose

Resumen

La tomosíntesis de la mama es una herramienta del diagnóstico radiológico que se encuentra en constante desarrollo. En esta actualización sobre tomosíntesis se hace una revisión de las ventajas de la técnica, tanto en mamografía diagnóstica como de cribado, así como de sus limitaciones, entre las que la dosis de radiación es la principal. La aparición más reciente de la mamografía sintetizada, la detección de lesiones asistida por ordenador y la biopsia guiada por tomosíntesis, ha contribuido a reducir la dosis de radiación empleada y a mejorar el rendimiento diagnóstico de la tomosíntesis, motivo por el cual también son objeto de esta revisión.
