For this reason, all possibilities for dose optimization should be exhausted before clinical trials of this procedure are instituted in large numbers of patients. 6 References [1] Skaane P, Bandos AI, Eben EB et al.

The most important studies have been published only in the last 3 years, and the results of additional large studies are not yet available. It will therefore be several years before tomosynthesis can be incorporated into clinically relevant guidelines and mammographic screening. For the time being, digital breast tomography can be used for routine investigation of equivocal mammographic findings. There are not yet sufficient data available to recommend tomosynthesis as a replacement for mammography.
