Breast cancer is the most common female cancer, except for skin cancer, in the United States for every major ethnic group and the second most common cause of cancer death in women.Mammography continues to be the Gold Standard of screening women for breast cancer.Even with the development of full-field digital mammography, the main limitation of mammography is its decreased sensitivity in women with dense breast tissue.Dense breast tissue is present in 40-60% of all women.Dedicated breast computed tomography (DBCT) is a new imaging modality that provides three-dimensional (3D) data that can be reconstructed into multiple imaging planes. Therefore, the objective of our study is to assess radiologist confidence in the characterization of suspicious breast lesions in a population of women going to biopsy with a DBCT system in comparison to diagnostic two-dimensional (2D) full-field digital mammography (dxDM).
