This information brief is in response to a request from the Direction québécoise de cancérologie concerning the possible use of digital breast tomosynthesis (DBT) in the Quebec Breast Cancer Screening Program.

In conclusion, DBT is a promising technological advance that has moved beyond the technological development stage and that is about to move beyond the investigational phase. However, there is still not sufficient standardization from an operational standpoint for it to be included in a population-based screening program.
