3D Tomo

Breast cancer is currently the most common cancer in women worldwide. Early detection and reliable diagnosis are keys to survival. Even today's gold standard, 2D mammography, does not always deliver clear results. Especially with dense breast tissue, the results of 2D imaging can be uncertain. Siemens True Breast Tomosynthesis is a 3D option with the Siemens MAMMOMAT Inspiration mammography platform. It marks a new era in breast care imaging with uncompromised image quality, greater patient comfort and improved clinical and administrative workflow.

Going 3D

Standard mammography suffers from decreasing sensitivity as tissue density increases. This can result in unclear images, which can lead to cancers being missed, especially in patients with dense breasts.

Mammograms also present certain challenges in image reading and interpretation. A 3D object like the breast displayed as a 2D X-ray image forcibly leads to a loss of image depth information. Superimposition means lesions may be masked by the tissue above or underneath, or normal structures may mimic a lesion. True Breast Tomosynthesis helps reduce these challenges.

How Tomosynthesis Works

With tomosynthesis, a full-field digital mammography system acquires multiple projection images of the breast. The X-ray tube moves through a 50° arc above the stationary detector, acquiring an image every two degrees for a total of 25 projections.

The projection images are then reconstructed into a 3D volume in DICOM format for flexible display on reading and reporting workstations. Reviewing physicians can scroll through the slices for a comprehensive overview. The 3D image quality and depth resolution directly depend on the number of projections, angle size and reconstruction algorithm.

True Breast Tomosynthesis

Siemens Healthineers’ solution, derived from Siemens CT technology, allows physicians and patients to feel confident by reducing unnecessary recalls and improving the early stage detection rate. High spatial resolution and the large acquisition angle of 50° allow for excellent resolution depth and superior reconstruction results. This leads to fewer artifacts and greater image detail, thereby improving diagnostic capabilities.

The number of projection images and the angular range of the tomosynthesis system directly affect the quality of the resulting 3D image. Optimizing both criteria, Siemens offers physicians an excellent diagnostic basis.
