Paper Abstract

The current mammography uses analog screen film for acquisition, storage, and display, however, there still remain many improvements to be made such as increasing sensitivity, higher contrast resolution, and wider dynamic range. Also, the analog mammography shows inadequate results for young women under the age of 40 because of the radiodense breast tissue. Thus, it is essential to improve the current standard for greater chance of detection with a minimum amount of radiation exposed to the patient. The goal of this project was to investigate the contrast detail detectability of a prototype Full Field Digital Mammography system using simulated lesions from CDMAM phantom.
