Tomosynthesis is an imaging or X-ray technique that can be used to screen for early signs of breast cancer in women with no symptoms.
This type of imaging can also be used as a diagnostic tool for women that are having breast cancer symptoms.
Tomosynthesis is an advanced type of mammography. A tomosynthesis takes multiple images of the breast. These images are sent to a computer that uses an algorithm to combine them into a 3-D image of the entire breast.
