Scatter rejection in multislit digital mammography
2006 (English)In: Medical physics (Lancaster), ISSN 0094-2405, Vol. 33, no 4, 933-940 p.Article in journal (Refereed) Published
The scatter to primary ratio (SPR) was measured on a scanning multislit full-field digital mammography system for different thickness of breast equivalent material and different tube voltages. Scatter within the detector was measured separately and was found to be the major source of scatter in the assembly. Measured total SPRs below 6% are reported for breast range 3-7 cm. The performance of the multislit assembly is compared to other imaging geometries with different scatter rejection schemes by using the scatter detective quantum efficiency.
