Paper Abstract

The relationship between absorbed dose and image quality in xeromammography is examined as a function of various x-ray beam and breast parameters. Image quality is assessed in terms of measured density profiles across low contrast edges. The radiographic risk is quantified by means of the average absorbed dose to the whole breast. It is concluded the diagnostically useful images can be obtained at exposure levels substantially lower than currently quoted in literature.
