Digital breast tomosynthesis versus digital mammography: a clinical performance study
TLDR
Clinical performance of tomosynthesis in one view at the same total dose as standard screen-film mammography is not inferior to digital mammography in two views. Expand
Patient dose in full-field digital mammography: an Italian survey
TLDR
Results of this study were compared with those of other surveys, showing that full-field digital mammography allows a significant clinical dose reduction compared with screen/film mammography. Expand
Stand-Alone Artificial Intelligence for Breast Cancer Detection in Mammography: Comparison With 101 Radiologists.
TLDR
The evaluated AI system achieved a cancer detection accuracy comparable to an average breast radiologist in this retrospective setting, although promising, the performance and impact of such a system in a screening setting needs further investigation. Expand
Performance comparison of single-view digital breast tomosynthesis plus single-view digital mammography with two-view digital mammography
TLDR
Breast tomosynthesis (DBT) has emerged as a valuable adjunct to mammography (MX) in terms of ROC curve area, sensitivity and specificity and was superior to two-view MX in recognising benign lesions. Expand
Evaluation of the minimum iodine concentration for contrast-enhanced subtraction mammography
TLDR
This work investigates the use of an iodine-based contrast medium in mammography with two different double exposure techniques: K-edge subtraction mammography and temporal subtraction Mammography, using an ideal source, like monochromatic beams produced at a synchrotron radiation facility and a clinical digital mammography system. Expand
Dose comparison between screen/film and full-field digital mammography
TLDR
Full-field digital mammography dose reduction is allowed by wider dynamic range and higher efficiency of digital detector, which can be exposed at higher energy spectra than screen/film mammography, and by the separation between acquisition and displaying processes. Expand
Grid removal and impact on population dose in full-field digital mammography.
TLDR
By applying the mAs reduction factors to a clinical population derived from a data base of 4622 breasts, dose benefit was quantified in terms of population dose and was considered small, not sufficient to justify a clinical implementation. Expand
Evaluation of the minimum iodine concentration for contrast-enhanced subtraction mammography.
TLDR
This work investigates the use of an iodine-based contrast medium in mammography with two different double exposure techniques: K-edge subtraction mammography and temporal subtraction Mammography, using an ideal source, like monochromatic beams produced at a synchrotron radiation facility and a clinical digital mammography system. Expand
Dual-energy imaging in full-field digital mammography: a phantom study.
TLDR
Preliminary results show that a combination of a standard Mo- anode 28 kV radiograph with a Rh-anode 49 kV radiator provides the best compromise between image-quality and dose in the hybrid image. Expand
Are phantoms useful for predicting the potential of dose reduction in full-field digital mammography?
TLDR
This multi-phantom study shows the potential of further reducing the dose in full-field digital mammography beyond the current values, and a common dose reduction factor around 50% seems acceptable for all phantoms. Expand
