We investigated the effect of projection view (PV) distribution on detectability of microcalcification clusters (MC) in digital breast tomosynthesis (DBT) by a computer-aided detection (CAD) system. With IRB approval, DBT of breasts with biopsy-proven MCs were acquired with 60° tomographic angle, 21 PVs, and 3° increment (full set). The DBT volume was reconstructed using simultaneous algebraic reconstruction technique (SART) with multiscale bilateral filtering (MSBF) regularization. Three… CONTINUE READING
