Paper Abstract

Screen-film mammography is growing rapidly. The impor-tance of using dedicated x-ray units with appropriate beam quality and breast compression for screen-film mammography is emphasized. The present status of grids for mammography is presented. Mammographic screen-film characteristics, in terms of contrast, light diffusion, and noise, are reviewed. Radiation dose in mammography is discussed in terms of measurement, calculation, and theoretical risk.
