KTH, Superseded Departments, Physics.

Abstract [en]

The apparatus comprises an x-ray source (21) and an x-ray image receiver (25). The breast (26) to be examined is placed between compression paddles (23,24) which flatten it, maximizing breast exposure to allow a sufficient contrast to be obtained. The collimator arrangement (22) can be moved to a parking position (P) when no x-ray exposure is conducted, and an active position (A) before x-ray exposure is initiated. The beam collimator is positioned between the x-ray source and the compressor paddles. An Independent claim is included for a mammography apparatus.
