Paper Abstract

A convenient and systematic protocol for evaluating the image quality of digitized mammographic phantom images has been developed. It involves the measurement of the contrast of a low-contrast nodule and/or a group of microcalcifications from images of the American College of Radiology mammographic accreditation phantoms acquired under different x-ray techniques.
