Aims and objectives: To compare the image quality of two reconstruction methods in digital breast tomosynthesis (DBT); the iterative Heuristic Bayesian Inference Reconstruction (HBIR) method and the conventional Filtered-Back Projection (FBP) method.

Methods and materials: Image acquisition and study population   Sixteen DBTs were obtained in 11 breasts with known breast findings according to BI-RADS2 or BI-RADS6: 4 craniocaudal, 2 mediolateral oblique and 5 both views using a Siemens 2D/3D mammography device[1-3]. For each scan, 25 projection[...]

Results:   Visibility of breast parenchyma was significantly better using the HBIR reconstruction method compared to FBP (AUCVGC = 0.84; p = 0.0015). Lesion specific assessment revealed an AUCVGC > 0.5 for clarity of lesion edge, noise level and extent of artifacts using the HBIR method. Lesion consp[...]

Conclusion: 3D mammography (DBT) has shown to improve diagnostic accuracy in comparison to 2D mammography and frequently, the conventional FBP method has been used[2, 3, 10-12]. But the dose level applied need to be considered[12]. As shown, the HBIR method significantly improves visibility of breast paren[...]
