Digital Tomosynthesis:

accurancy and speed in three dimensions

Digital Tomosynthesis

Digital Tomosynthesis is a software specifically developed to perform the tomosynthesis algorithm, which, using a sequence of projections acquired at different angles, guarantees a complete reconstruction of the volume to be examined.


This algorithm is a Dynamic Link Library (dll) designed and developed by Digitec, intended to be integrated into different acquisition software (software that will generate the x-ray images).

In traditional X-rays, body volumes are flattened in outputs that superimpose soft tissue, bones and different structures in a single image. This technical limit, together with the high costs and reduced portability of computed tomography techniques, has oriented research towards algorithm solutions and, consequently, towards the development of dedicated applications capable of optimising execution, portability and the results.


This research has produced Digital Tomosynthesis, a software solution capable of carrying out a volumetric reconstruction of the patient's body, guaranteeing clinical outcomes of high technical quality, hardware portability and economic sustainability.

Digital Tomosynthesis

The volume generated by Digital Tomosynthesis can be analyzed layer by layer, allowing the radiologist to observe the object in three dimensions, separating the structures at different heights into different levels based on the position inside the body.

Digital Breast Tomosynthesis

Digital Breast Tomosynthesis has a major impact in preventive screening for breast cancer: by exposing the patient to a limited dose of radiation and acquiring three-dimensional images. This technology offers the possibility of examining the breast layer by layer and improving the visibility of the structures, including the early diagnosis of any tumour formations.

Advantages of three-dimensional output

For the tomosynthesis algorithm, each individual projection is acquired at different angles and therefore contains different points of view of the framed object. Exploiting the different viewpoints of the projections, the volume is reconstructed in a three-dimensional space.


The individual tomosynthesis images allow greater visibility and ‘granularity’ of detail than in radiography.

Although conventional mammography is still the diagnostic reference standard for the prevention of breast cancer, the tomosynthesis technique allows for a stratigraphic study of the breast and therefore, in a significant number of cases, potentially more effective diagnostic outcomes.
