If you have not worked extensively with digital breast tomosynthesis (dbt) imaging, you may not be fully aware how different it is from conventional mammography and ct the tomophan® phantom has been low contrast: the phantom has 8 acrylic spheres located in a central circular pattern the spheres are used to. Scanners, it is evident that tomosynthesis offers great promise as an alternative to conventional mammography phantom and patient results have demonstrated that tomosynthesis removes structure noise and greatly improves the in-slice low contrast detectability [14, 15, 16] a comparison between a tomosynthesis image. Task‐based strategy for optimized contrast enhanced breast imaging: analysis of six imaging techniques for mammography and tomosynthesis lc ikejimba, n kiarashi assessing task performance in ffdm, dbt, and synthetic mammography using uniform and anthropomorphic physical phantoms lc ikejimba, sj glick. Dose and contrast-to-noise ratio under aec 9 23 6 12 objectives the aims of the evaluation were to: • measure the technical performance of the fujifilm amulet innovality system in tomosynthesis mode • verify that the dose and images were acquired of the cdmam phantom in tomosynthesis mode the cdmam. The effect of acquisition geometry in digital breast tomosynthesis (dbt) was evaluated with studies of contrast-to-noise ratios (cnrs) and observer preference contrast-detail (cd) test objects in 5 cm thick phantoms with breast- like backgrounds were imaged twelve different angular acquisitions (average. The resolution and noise characteristics of this high‐energy in‐line phase contrast tomosynthesis prototype were successfully investigated and demonstrated the phantom studies demonstrated that this imaging prototype can successfully remove the structure overlapping in phantom projections, obtain delineate interfaces.
Recently, a physical phantom with a structured background has been introduced for both 2d mammography and breast tomosynthesis dual energy and contrast -enhanced mammography, the advanced monochromatic and phase-contrast imaging [1–4]) or three-dimensional (tomosynthesis and breast ct [5–13]) for all.

We aimed to compare radiation dose received during contrast-enhanced spectral mammography (cesm) using high- and low-energy projections with radiation dose received during 2d full field digital mammography (ffdm) and 3d tomosynthesis on phantoms and patients with varying breast thickness and density.
Abstract this paper presents a computer-based system dedicated to x-ray phase contrast (phc) imaging research it consists of two main modules: (a) a module for generation of x-ray phc images from computational phantoms and (b) a module for image reconstruction the module for generation of x-ray.

Simulated projection data for a bar pattern phantom have been used collected with isocentric fluoroscopic units, such as the radiotherapy simulator or the angiographic units the effect of the reconstruction arc on spa- tial resolution, slice thickness, contrast sensitivity, shape distortion and artifacts, was experimentally.

The additional slab was designed for the use with contrast enhanced digital breast tomosynthesis  the quart mam/digi epqc phantom (quart gmbh, zorneding, germany) is a relatively new phantom developed for mammography as well as for breast tomosyn- thesis [8, 9] it consists of a pmma body containing a wedge. We have previously studied the effects of projection view distribution on spatial blurring and contrast-to-noise ratio of simulated microcalcifications in a phantom in our previous study, the number of projection views was fixed, while the scan angle was varied (37) we observed the trend that the contrast-to-noise ratio of.
The performance of a commercial digital mammographic system working in 2d planar versus tomosynthesis mode was evaluated in terms of the image signal difference to noise ratio (sdnr) a contrast detail phantom was obtained embedding 1 cm plexiglas, including 49 holes of different diameter and. Tomophan® qa provides a complete and convenient analysis for the tomophan ® digital breast tomosynthesis phantom this phantom and service provides the most accurate and insightful image quality analysis for this unique imaging modality. Mography, the advanced monochromatic and phase-contrast imag- ing [1–4]) or three-dimensional (tomosynthesis and breast ct [5– 13]) for all these techniques, it is important that both physical and software phantoms reproduce the breast characteristics for the study of particular aspects of the imaging. The purpose of this study is to demonstrate the feasibility of using a high-energy in-line phase contrast tomosynthesis system to quantitatively imaging microbubbles in a tissue simulating phantom under a limited radiation dose the imaging system used in the investigation was a bench top in-line phase contrast.

Abstract: monte carlo (mc) calculations for breast dosimetry in digital breast tomosynthesis (dbt) require experimental validations we measured the 3-d dose distribution in breast phantoms, using xr-qa2 radiochromic films, compared to dose maps obtained with a previously validated mc code.
