Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) has long been the preferred tool for women who are considered high-risk and have dense breast tissue, to supplement their mammogram. Digital Breast Tomosynthesis (DBT), a 3-D breast imaging technology, has recently gained in popularity as a supplement to mammography in more difficult cases but many physicians have questions about its value versus cost. This free Webinar covers a comparision of 2D vs 3D Mammography, a review of Digital Breat Tomosynthesis, equipment cost considerations, as well as technical requirements to consider before making a switch.
