Abstract: Introduction: Digital tomosynthesis (DTS) is a relatively new imaging modality in thoracic imaging. The technique is based on the equipment of conventional radiography, upgraded with a moving tube that enables separation of structures that are superimposed on chest x-ray (CXR). DTS has proven to be superior to CXR in detection of pathology, as well as a problem-solver for inconclusive findings in CXR, and has also been suggested as a low-dose / low-cost alternative to computed tomography (CT).
