This paper presents the Malmö Breast Tomosynthesis project. The tomosynthesis equipment is described as well as the patient selection and image acquisition. Special focus is given to one of the studies of the project, which is a comparison of the diagnostic performance between breast tomosynthesis (BT), digital mammography (DM) and ultrasonography (US):(More)
This pilot study aimed to investigate whether mammographic compression procedures might cause shedding of tumor cells into the circulatory system as reflected by circulating tumor cell (CTC) count in peripheral venous blood samples. From March to October 2012, 24 subjects with strong suspicion of breast malignancy were included in the study. Peripheral(More)
OBJECTIVE To assess the performance of one-view digital breast tomosynthesis (DBT) in breast cancer screening. METHODS The Malmö Breast Tomosynthesis Screening Trial is a prospective population-based one-arm study with a planned inclusion of 15000 participants; a random sample of women aged 40-74 years eligible for the screening programme. This is an(More)
A newly developed Digital Radiography (DR) detector has smaller pixel size and higher fill factor than earlier detector models. These technical advantages should theoretically lead to higher sensitivity and higher spatial resolution, thus making dose reduction possible without scarifying image quality compared to previous DR detector versions. To examine(More)
OBJECTIVES To evaluate the efficiency of different methods of reading breast tomosynthesis (BT) image volumes. METHODS All viewing procedures consisted of free scroll volume browsing and three were combined with initial cine loops at three different frame rates (9, 14 and 25 fps). The presentation modes consisted of vertically and horizontally orientated(More)
Pontus Timberg Purpose: To determine how image quality linked to tumor detection is affected by reducing the absorbed dose to 50% and 30% of standard dose levels, i.e. an average glandular dose of 1.26 mGy for a standard breast according to European guidelines. Material and methods: Tumors were computer simulated and inserted into 40 out of 90 normal,(More)
