Abstract:

Based on the work we have done this year, we believe that digital mammography using an existing commercial storage phosphor device combined with appropriate image processing does equal in phantoms the resolution of conventional screen film systems at an equivalent patient dose and can exceed the object detectability of conventional screen film systems when a higher patient dose is used. During the optimization techniques, it also became apparent those some of the problems previously reported were secondary to static electrical charges and dust. We found it essential to be unusually care controlling dust to avoid calcium like artifacts. Breast cancer, Mammography, Digital, RAD Vi.
