Digital breast tomosynthesis is a new technology that helps improve the radiologist's ability to diagnose breast cancer. It is a three-dimensional imaging technique that images the breast in layers and decreases the superposition of normal tissues.
The first DBT unit was approved by the FDA in 2011, and nowadays almost all facilities use a DBT system in combination with 2D mammography for breast imaging.
This course was developed to help you understand how digital breast tomosynthesis works and know its clinical applications, advantages, limitations, and the main features of the various DBT units.
It describes the accreditation and certification process of MQSA and the training and CE requirements for the radiologist, technologist, and physicist.
This course is accredited by the American Society of Radiologic Technologists (ASRT) for 6 CE credits.
