    The proven limited sensitivity of mammography, due to tissue superposition in a 2D image, has motivated the development of alternative 3D imaging systems with minimal ionizing exposure and relatively low cost. The advent of digital detectors facilitated the realization of digital breast tomosynthesis systems, which acquire low-dose projection images of the breast from multiple directions to synthesize slices through the volume of the breast parallel to the plane of the projection images. Although still in its clinical infancy, this imaging system has been studied in a multitude of domains. This concise overview introduces digital breast tomosynthesis and elaborates on the state-of-the-art in its applications and performance. © 2013 Future Medicine Ltd.
