Paper Abstract

The possibility has been demonstrated of significant image improvement in screen-film mammography without increase in relevant patient dose, when a fast screen-film combination is used with magnification or grid, when compared with a slower screen-film combination using conventional technique (no grid use or magnification). An ideal dedi-cated mammography x-ray unit, containing a small (± 300 micron) tungsten focal spot, and a grid should result in optimal imaging of all breast sizes and tissue consistencies.
