DBT is an advanced method often used for diagnostic purposes. The breast is scanned over an arch of 30 degrees, during which multiple X-ray images are taken to create a 3D image that shows tissue structures in more detail.
DBT generates a stack of sharp cross-sectional images of the breast. With reduced tissue overlap in the image, cancerous cells have fewer places to hide. Because of scan acquisition, the compression time is slightly longer than in a 2D exam.
