Abstract|ملخص البحث

This paper presents a mathematical tissue-equivalent breast phantom for linear slot-scanning digital mammography. A recently developed prototype linear slot-scanning digital mammography system was used for model validation; image quality metrics such as image contrast and contrast-to-noise ratio were calculated. The results were in good agreement with values measured using a physical breast-equivalent phantom designed for mammography. The estimated pixel intensity of the mathematical phantom, the analogue-to-digital conversion gain and the detector additive noise showed good agreement with measured values with correlation of nearly 1. An application of the model, to examine the feasibility of using a monochromatic filter for dose reduction and improvement of image quality in slot-scanning digital mammography, is presented.
