Paper Abstract

The basic performance characteristics of a wide variety of mammographic screen-film combinations have been experimentally determined. The performance characteristics studied include absolutely calibrated sensitometry, modulation transfer functions, noise power spectra, noise equivalent quanta, and detective quantum efficiency. Specific advantages of various systems are discussed as well as their potential limitations.
