Task Group No. 282 - Development of a new universal breast dosimetry method (TG282)

AAPM Members, Affiliates and Non-Member Affiliates - Login for access to additional information


To develop and disseminate a new model and corresponding methodology to estimate the breast average glandular dose (AGD) from x-ray based image acquisitions including standard mammography, contrast-enhanced mammography, and breast tomosynthesis. The developed method will include the definitions of a reference air kerma measurement procedure, reference breast representations, and conversion factors to estimate the AGD from the reference measurements. Recommendations regarding the use and limitations of different  metrics such as reference model AGD and patient model AGD will be included. Since it is envisioned that this single new model and method will replace the current disparate methods used in the USA, Europe and the rest of the world, this group will be an official task group of the AAPM and a working group of EFOMP, and will seek the endorsement of its final report by other international societies and agencies, such as the ICRU, IAEA, IEC, etc.
