Shaping the future of tomosynthesis in screening


With 50° wide-angle tomosynthesis. Superior by design.

At Siemens Healthineers, we believe that tomosynthesis will dominate the screening space in the near future. And we are convinced that 50° wide-angle tomosynthesis is the superior method for cancer detection1. It provides the highest mass detectability2, increasing your diagnostic accuracy. Not only do we enable superior cancer detection1 with our 50° wide-angle tomosynthesis, but we also deliver a patient-centric solution – with decreased compression and the right dose.

Will DBT replace FFDM?
A recent study published in the American Journal of Roentgenology showed that 50° wide-angle, two-view DBT alone provided a greater diagnostic accuracy than FFDM for most radiologists, even for those inexperienced with DBT technology. Reader performance for breast cancer detection was higher with 50° wide-angle DBT, providing convincing evidence for its robustness as a stand-alone method.
