digital tomosynthesis

digital tomosynthesis

a system of tomography, using a computer and a digital fluoroscopy unit, that can synthesize any tomographic plane from a single tomographic pass. As only one tomographic pass is required, patient radiation exposure is reduced. Patient time in examination is also reduced as the recorded images can be synthesized and manipulated at a later time. See also digital fluoroscopy.
