American College of Radiology Position statement on DBT:

A new digital technology, breast tomosynthesis has shown to be an advance over digital mammography, with higher cancer detection rates and fewer patient recalls for additional testing. This is extremely important. The medical community has long sought ways to improve breast cancer screening accuracy. Better sensitivity will likely translate into more lives saved. Lower recall rates result in fewer patients who may experience short-term anxiety awaiting test results. This is important evidence that tomosynthesis will have a positive impact on patient care.....

Recently published research on 3D Mammography:

Three large prospective clinical trials have shown a 24-34% increased cancer detection rate with use of 3D Mammography. The OTST trial (N= 12,000 women) has shown a 24% increased cancer detection rate. The STORM trial (N=7200 women) has shown a 34% increased detection with 3D mammography compared to 2D mammography. The MALMO Breast tomosynthesis trial (N=7500 women) showed a 29% increased cancer detection rate with 3D mammography.

...'Yet none of the currently available adjunct breast imaging technologies seems as promising, or as feasible to implement on a large scale, as digital breast Tomosynthesis (DBT), a pseudo–3-dimensional derivative technology of digital mammography (DM).In fact, this technology appears to be disseminating throughout the United States faster than the pace witnessed for DM in the preceding decade, with 50% of facilities in the Breast Cancer Surveillance Consortium now offering DBT...
