Mammography has been widely adopted as the primary screening tool in breast cancer detection and assessment. Screening in dense breast makes it difficult to detect lesions on screening and lowers its sensitivity to detect small lesions. Sensitivity and specificity improves with use of digital breast tomosynthesis and whole breast ultrasound in detecting lesions and also in differentiating benign and malignant breast lesions. Breast ultrasound and DBT have shown equivocal significance in detecting breast lesion on screening in the present study.
The aim of the study was to evaluate utility of whole breast ultrasound and digital tomosynthesis as an adjunct with mammography in dense breast to detect breast lesions.
