The results obtained by utilizing low-dose plates in xeromammography are reported. Phantom experimental examinations and dosimetric measurements were made before using these plates. The new exposition data were then compared to those obtained with the old plates. Findings prove low-dose plates to be more sensitive--thus granting very good iconographic(More)
