Tomosynthesis is a new digital imaging technology that combines cone-beam CT reconstruction with digital image processing. It allows images of any cross section to be obtained easily from volume data acquired from a single tomographic scan.

– Flexible Examinations with Freedom in Choosing Body Positions
This allows images to be obtained with loads applied in the standing position, or in the supine position on a table. Consequently, it can be used to obtain images of the elbow or knee in the bent position, which is difficult using CT.
– Display of Oblique Cross Sections
Tilting the tomosynthesis cross section slightly from horizontal improves the visibility of spines, hip joints, and other areas that are not parallel to the tabletop.
