Paper Abstract

This work describes design of a new type of antiscatter x- ray grids in mammography. A comparison of the proposed grid and conventional grids was made. The results show that it will be possible by use an ideal glass capillary grids to reduce the patient dose and to increase the image contrast by a factor approximately 2 as compared to the case without grid.
