Digital Breast Tomosynthesis Market size is estimated at $2.8 billion in 2021, projected to grow at a CAGR of 13.2% during the forecast period 2022-2027. Digital Breast Tomosynthesis (DBT) is a kind of breast imaging, or mammography, which converts x-ray images of the breast into a three-dimensional image set using low-dose x-ray equipment, electronics, and a computer. It's used to provide high-resolution limited-angle tomography at radiation doses comparable to protection radiography and for detecting and diagnosing cancer at an early stage. Projectional radiography or conventional radiography produces two-dimensional images by x-ray radiations. DBT is also known as 3d mammography. According to German research published in October 2021 in European Radiology, when compared to conventional mammography alone, combining digital breast tomosynthesis (DBT) with synthesized 2D mammography results in greater cancer detection rates with fewer recalls. Synthetic mammography uses DBT data to recreate 2D images, requiring no additional radiation. Image quality is key to early detection. Hologic's, a medical technology company primarily focused on women’s health, direct conversion detector is used in the Selenia Dimensions Hologic, eliminating the need to convert x-rays to light. As a result, the digital images are exceedingly sharp and have a high Detective Quantum Efficiency (DQE), allowing for low-dose tomosynthesis imaging.
Increasing prevalence of breast cancer, technological advancements for the detection and diagnosis of cancer and growing awareness about the benefits of tomosynthesis are some of the factors driving the Digital Breast Tomosynthesis industry forward in the projected period of 2022-2027.

BreastScreen Australia is a joint project of the Australian and state and territory governments that aims to minimize breast cancer-related illness and death by early detection. Every two years, women over the age of 40 are given a free mammogram.
Digital Breast Tomosynthesis Market Drivers
Increasing Prevalence of Breast Cancer Is Augmenting the Market Growth
The rising prevalence of breast cancer globally is one of the key drivers of market growth. According to the World Health Organization, 2.3 million women were diagnosed with breast cancer in 2020, with 685 000 fatalities worldwide. Breast cancer had been diagnosed in 7.8 million women in the previous five years as of the end of 2020, making it the most common cancer in the world. Digital Breast Tomosynthesis is a technique that enables the three-dimensional reconstruction of breast tissue, which can then be viewed as consecutive sections across the breast. It increases breast cancer detection while lowering the false-positive or recall rate. Furthermore, it increases the detection of ductal carcinoma in situ, which are little abnormal tissue growths restricted to the milk ducts of the breast (DCIS). If these tumors are removed at an early stage, they rarely cause any harm to the patient, thereby, driving the Digital Breast Tomosynthesis Industry.
