An automatic full-field volumetric breast ultrasound scanner (AFFBUS) is a developing technology which was initiated to overcome the drawback of dense breast and to get a three-dimensional view of the breast.
Automatic ultrasound imaging ac...
Contrast enhanced mammography (CEM) is a complementary breast imaging modality. A finite number of sequential images are obtained with X-ray beam produced at a high energy, above the K-edge of Iodine, and with an intravenous non-ionic Iodine contrast agent injected between pre and post contrast...
Dual-energy digital mammography is a complementary breast imaging modality.
The technique consists of high-energy and low-energy digital mammograms after administration of iodinated contrast agent.
Breast is exposed to low- and high-energy X-ray beams during a single breast compression in MLO ...
Flying focus is a technology of image acquisition in digital breast tomosynthesis characterized by a continuous sweep during shooting.
Sharpness in digital systems is determined by the modulation transfer function (MTF), which determine contrast transfer as a function of spatial frequency.
Mammography is a dedicated radiographic technique for imaging the breast.
Types of mammography
In general terms, there are two types of mammography: screening and diagnostic.
Mammography differs significantly in many respects from the rest of diagnostic imaging.
Step-and-shoot is a technology of image acquisition in digital breast tomosynthesis characterised by stop scanning at every single angle during images acquisition.
Step-and-shoot technology allows advantages in microcalcifications conspicuity, spatial resolution, signal-to-noise Ratio improveme...
