WE-G-103-08: Retrospective Determination of Personalized Mean Glandular Dose Coefficients for Conventional Mammography Using Heterogeneously-Layered Breast Models.


PURPOSE The heterogeneous distribution of the glandular tissue is overlooked in calculations of mean glandular dose (MGD). In this work, we introduce a methodology for the calculation of patient-oriented dose conversion coefficients. In addition, we provide an empirical relationship to use for the estimation of these coefficients in a clinical setting… (More)
