By Alberto Tagliafico, Nehmat Houssami, Massimo Calabrese

This publication offers a accomplished description of the screening and scientific functions of electronic breast tomosynthesis (DBT) and gives easy, transparent assistance on use of the approach. Informative scientific circumstances are provided to demonstrate tips on how to reap the benefits of DBT in medical perform. the significance of DBT as a diagnostic instrument for either screening and analysis is expanding quickly. DBT improves upon mammography by way of depicting breast tissue on a video clip made from cross‐sectional photos reconstructed in correspondence with their mammographic planes of acquisition. DBT leads to markedly diminished summation of overlapping breast tissue and gives the capability to enhance mammographic breast melanoma surveillance and prognosis. This publication may be an outstanding useful instructing advisor for newcomers and an invaluable reference for more matured radiologists.

In 2009, Connecticut became the first state to adopt legislation to inform women with dense breast of their relatively increased risk of having a breast cancer. Other states in the United States followed the Connecticut legislation. The increased media attention over breast density has to be accompanied by simple, but crucial, information about a physiological entity that changes over time with ageing: • Breast density decreases with increasing body mass index (fat content). • Breast density generally decreases with age.

The increased media attention over breast density has to be accompanied by simple, but crucial, information about a physiological entity that changes over time with ageing: • Breast density decreases with increasing body mass index (fat content). • Breast density generally decreases with age. • Increasing body mass index and ageing increase breast cancer risk. Other factors such as tamoxifen therapy, hormone replacement therapy, some drugs, weight changes, and dietary changes affect breast density.

For this reason, it 3 Tomosynthesis and Breast Density 31 is possible that a woman has a mammogram reported as dense one year and then non-dense the subsequent year. This situation has to be considered possible due to physiological changes in breast composition. Proper education of the patient and the referring clinician may avoid confusion (Freer 2015). 2 What Is the Evidence That Breast Density Is a Major Risk Factor for Breast Cancer? Breast density, considered as mammographic breast density, is a recognized risk factor for breast cancer for two reasons: • Breast density had a masking effect for breast cancer detection.
