European Training and Education for Medical Physics Experts in Radiology

Achieving quality in diagnostic and screening mammography



A practical challenge to be solved: How to perform technical quality control in breast cancer screening, including modern image analysis, image processing and image acquisition techniques?

Importance and impact of the training module: The philosophy of technical quality evaluations for mammography equipment in screening must be to ensure the required image quality at an acceptable X-ray dose. We will discuss preliminary and new QC methods to investigate new modalities or techniques like tomosynthesis systems, breast density software, computer assisted detection/diagnosis software and image processing software.

Lead: R. van Engen, EUREF member and 1st author of the European Guidelines, LRCB, (partner 10).
