Table 3 Correlation between DBT results and pathology

From: Does automated breast ultrasound (ABUS) add to breast tomosynthesis (DBT) in assessment of lesions in dense breasts?

DBT Pathology
Benign Malignant
Benign 50 2
Malignant 3 27
Total 53 29
  1. True positive, 27/29 = 93.1% (cases diagnosed malignant by both DBT and pathology)
  2. False positive, 3/53 = 5.7% (cases diagnosed as malignant by DBT yet proved benign on pathology)
  3. True negative, 50/53 = 94.3% (cases diagnosed benign by both DBT and pathology)
  4. False negative, 2/29 = 6.9% (cases diagnosed as benign by DBT yet proved malignant on pathology)
