Paper Abstract

A new generation of digital breast tomosynthesis system has been designed and is commercially available outside the US. The system has both a 2D mode and a 3D mode to do either conventional mammography or tomosynthesis. Uniquely, it also has a fusion mode that allows both 3D and 2D images to be acquired under the same breast compression, which results in co-registered images from the two modalities. The aim of this paper is to present a technical description on the design and performance of the new system, including system details such as filter options, doses, AEC operation, 2D and 3D images co-registration and display, and the selenium detector performance. We have carried out both physical and clinical studies to evaluate the system. In this paper the focus will be mainly on technical performance results.
