Digital Breast Tomosynthesis: Basic Physics and Operation
L Greer1*, (1) ,Phoenix, AZSU-B-Salon BCD-1 Sunday 10:00:00 AM - 12:00:00 PM Room: Salon BCD
This lecture is for the purpose of introducing the audience to digital breast tomosynthesis: the advantages of this technology, how images are obtained and reconstructed, how it has changed daily mammography practice, and radiation dose issues. We will also be introducing C View, which is currently under FDA review. Examples will be shown of 2D vs 3D mammograms, demonstrating marked improvement in cancer detection.
I do lecture on behalf of Hologic, but stipends for these lectures are paid to JC Lincoln Health Foundation, and I personally receive no money for these services. There are no known conflicts of interest.
