According to Emily F.Conant MD, Chief of breast imaging at Penn Medicine “Early detection is critical to saving lives and lowering costs”. Digital Breast Tomosynthesis  is more cost effective in terms of health systems. Nationwide DBT is increasingly accepted by radiologists . DBT is having a more effective screening method. 

According to researchers’ study they tested DM and DBT into four outcomes ie, True Positive (TP), True Negative (TN), False Positive (FP), False Negative (FN). By comparing DM episodes with DBT episodes, DBT episodes had lower False Positive and higher True Negative. With respect to True Positive and False Negative rates there were no important differences between DM and DBT episodes.

Generally average episodes cost higher for DBT when compared to DM. There is no great difference in costs between DBT and DM episodes within the diagnosis or cancer treatment windows.
