Among the studies presented, researchers found the following:
- The use of DBT along with 2D digital mammography can reduce interreader variability (abstract B-0687).
- In terms of image quality, although digital mammography is superior to 2D central projection obtained with DBT, both techniques had a reduced incidence of artifacts (abstract B-0811).
- Breast density does not alter the diagnostic confidence of DBT compared with digital mammography reading (abstract B-0814).
- Using double-reading DBT as an adjunct to digital mammography could reduce the recall rate by 32% (abstract B-0815).
