PURPOSE To comprehensively characterize the dosimetric properties of a clinical digital breast tomosynthesis (DBT) system for the acquisition of mammographic and tomosynthesis images. MATERIALS AND METHODS Compressible water-oil mixture phantoms were created and imaged by using the automatic exposure control (AEC) of the Selenia Dimensions system (Hologic, Bedford, Mass) in both DBT and full-field digital mammography (FFDM) mode. Empirical measurements of the x-ray tube output were performed… CONTINUE READING
