AHIP Solutions SmartBrief | Dec 12, 2014

The study was reported in the Annals of Internal Medicine. Another study reported at the Radiological Society of North America meeting compared tomosynthesis with mammography and found a significant increase in cancer detection using tomosynthesis to screen women with dense breasts.
