Tional study of digital chest tomosynthesis for lung cancer detection in an at-risk population methods: accrual of study participants started in december 2010 and ended in december 2011 participants considered eligible were smokers or former smokers aged 45 to 75 years, with a smoking. Digital tomosynthesis is a 3- dimensional picture of the breast using x-rays digital tomosynthesis of the breast is different from a standard mammogram in the same way a ct scan of the chest is different from a standard chest x-ray.
Chest digital tomosynthesis was the most advanced digital radiography technology, but it was higher patient dose than conventional chest radiography thus we tried to reduce a patient dose of chest digital tomosynthesis and evaluated its image quality. Gomi, t, nakajima, m, fujiwara, h, et al (2011) comparison of chest dual-energy subtraction digital tomosynthesis imaging and dual-energy subtraction radiography to detect simulated pulmonary nodules with and without calcifications: a phantom study. Tomosynthesis is a new medical imaging technique, a real digital revival of “conventional” tomography that became obsolete a long time ago the rapid growth of digital radiology and plane sensors has contributed to the reappearance of this imaging procedure. Explore the concepts of dual-energy imaging and digital tomosynthesis as viable solutions to address these needs examine the potential benefits that might be offered by a combined de and dt system background: the traditional cxr is by far the most common approach to chest imaging. Digital chest tomosynthesis (dt), a tomographic technique, may offer an alternative to ct screening a recent study published in the journal of thoracic oncology (jto), concludes that digital chest tomosynthesis holds promise as a first-line lung cancer screening tool.
We present the baseline results of the sos study, a single-arm observational study of digital chest tomosynthesis for lung cancer detection in an at-risk population lung cancer detection with digital chest tomosynthesis: baseline results from the observational study sos - journal of thoracic oncology. The authors report interim clinical results from an ongoing nih-sponsored trial to evaluate digital chest tomosynthesis for improving detectability of small lung nodules. Chest digital tomosynthesis (cdt) is the evolution of the technique of geometric tomography, which was used extensively prior to the advent of chest ct scans but that was no more used for chest imaging owing to the positioning difficulty, high radiation dose, and residual blur caused by out of plane structure. Angela galea, paul dubbins, richard riordan, tarig adlan, carl roobottom and david gay, the value of digital tomosynthesis of the chest as a problem-solving tool for suspected pulmonary nodules and hilar lesions detected on chest radiography, european journal of radiology, 84, 5, (1012), (2015.

Digital tomosynthesis involves tomographic motion about a single plane during which separate radiographs are acquired at equal angular increments the resulting series of images can be shifted and recombined to yield planes in focus at any depth in the patient.
