Abstract

Purpose

To investigate whether digital breast tomosynthesis (DBT) and subsequently generated synthesized mammography (SM) images show a better performance than full-field digital mammography (FFDM) images for diagnosing malignant breast lesions. In addition, the radiation doses for SM using different procedures were compared.

Materials and methods

This prospective study enrolled 212 women (age ≥ 25 years) with clinically suspicious breast lesions. All participants underwent FFDM and DBT with the same breast compression. Finally, 222 lesions were confirmed by pathological analysis. The mammogram results were evaluated according to the BI-RADS criteria and compared with the pathological results. The diagnostic performances, morphological features and average glandular doses (AGDs) were compared.

Results

In total, 141 malignant lesions and 81 benign lesions were confirmed by pathological analysis. The overall AGD showed no significant difference between FFDM and DBT. Compared with 2D imaging, the AUC values of FFDM plus DBT and SM plus DBT were both significantly different overall (P = 0.0002) and remained significantly different in dense breasts (P < 0.0001). In terms of morphologic characteristics, lesions showed similar morphology between FFDM and SM, while the lesion characteristics were discordant from 2D imaging to DBT in 33 lesions in dense breasts.

Conclusions

Compared to FFDM, 2D SM images generated from DBT had significantly improved diagnostic efficacy for detecting malignant breast lesions without increasing radiation doses. This new procedure is useful for characterizing breast lesions, particularly in dense breasts.
