Paper Abstract

Two time-domain scanning optical mammographs are presently tested in clinical trials within the EU project "OPTIMAMM" supported by the EC. To assess their performance (e.g., accuracy, sensitivity, stability), systematic measurements were performed on breast-like phantoms. Both, estimation of optical properties and acquisition of good contrast images for diagnostic purposes were considered. The proposed assessment procedure can be applied to characterize and improve other novel and existing instruments for photon migration imaging and spectroscopy.
