Task Group No. 223 - Dosimetry in Tomosynthesis Imaging

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

ChargeThe primary charge of this Task Group is to develop the methods necessary to estimate dose from computations and empirical measurements resulting from acquisition of mammographic and radiographic digital tomosynthesis images. This will involve examining the theoretical aspects of dosimetry as applied to tomosynthesis imaging, computing the necessary normalized dose data for the relevant acquisition conditions, and developing the empirical methods to obtain absolute dosimetry values for representative anthropomorphic phantoms. The methods and procedures developed will be suitable for rapid routine QC/QA measurements and/or physician/patient information.
