Paper Abstract

The objective imaging characteristics of a new high-speed mammographic screen-film combination is analyzed in detail. By combining a large reduction in film granularity with substantial improvements in screen technology, high-speed mammography can now be re-optimized to yield improvements in imaging system performance. Optimal use of the materials for reducing patient motion and for magnification techniques is potentially more effective than previous high-speed systems.
