Carestream’s X-ray digital tomosynthesis functionality creates three-dimensional datasets from digital radiography (DR) that can be scrolled through similar to computed tomography (CT) imaging. It received 510(k) clearance from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) in January 2020. Digital tomosynthesis uses a single sweep of X-ray exposures and streamlines operator workflow by separating the process of DT exposure acquisition from image volume formation.

The use of augmented and virtual reality in radiology was the subject of two articles and part of the HIMSS 2019 trends article in the top 25 list. Augmented reality is being looked at as a way to better train radiologists, allow surgeons to use medical imaging in true 3-D to better plan surgeries, and it can allow patients to better understand their conditions compared to use of traditional 2-D medical images.
