D) Summation (c-view) image in the CC projection, synthesized from the tomosynthesis data set. The image closely resembles a conventional digital mammogram. The spiculated mass is visualized but is more difficult to detect compared with 3D tomosynthesis. However, the image does facilitate comparison with prior images. 27 Innovations and Future Developments cannot be applied to tomosynthesis without modifications, however: While the acquired image slices, with their extremely large data volumes, open new possibilities for image postprocessing, they also present new challenges.
