International Working Group on Phantoms for Breast Imaging (WGPBI)
AAPM Members, Affiliates and Non-Member Affiliates - Login for access to additional information

ChargeAs a co-operation between experts in North America (AAPM) and Europe (EUREF), the group is aimed to develop phantoms for evaluation of two and three-dimensional breast imaging systems. The phantom will be developed and tested in collaboration with other existing testing efforts by the AAPM and EUREF. The initial charge is focused on x-ray based systems, but can expand into other imaging modalities. This provides a unique opportunity to ensure the harmonization of phantom development effort and associated methods/software and limiting values. The co-operation will be conducted under the auspices of AAPM and EUREF, with additional engagement sought from ACR, SBR, ESOBS, RSNA, and relevant Asian organizations. The working group will also work closely with AAPM TG-171.
