Several technical modifications have been made to mammography since evolving from xeromammography to the development of screen-film mammography and full-field digital mammography (FFDM), and now digital breast tomosynthesis (DBT).
According to the interim guidelines, equipment used to perform mammography must be designed specifically for mammography (using either film-screen or xeromammography), provide a compression device and have a removable grid (except xeromammography).
The only recognized imaging techniques for the early detection of breast cancer are radiographic examinations with screen-film mammography and xeromammography. Although other breast imaging techniques (e.g., sonography, thermography, magnetic resonance imaging, and transillumination) have been investigated for their screening potential, such techniques have not yet achieved the levels of sensitivity and specificity of conventional approaches (5).
