Overview

Overview

  • Develop a “universal” breast phantom for emission and/or transmission imaging

    • Needs to be compressible for uncompressed and partial compression imaging comparisons

    • Needs to accommodate inserted lesions

    • Needs to have physical attributes similar to human torso

  • Make direct comparison of uncompressed breast SPECT and compressed scintimammography

    • Develop and compare various fillable lesion sizes

    • Compare different activity concentrations

Conclusions

Conclusions

  • Developed a compressible breast+chest phantom useful for comparative emission breast imaging with physical limitations more consistent with a human torso

  • Measured various lesion sizes, locations (esp. near chest wall), and activity concentrations relative to backgrounds

  • Compared compressed breast, planar scintimammography with uncompressed breast SPECT mammotomography

  • Scintimammography has limited viewable breast volume towards the anterior chest wall

Under a wide range of “low noise” measurement conditions:

More lesions, lesion sizes, and (3D) lesion locations can be detected (and thus quantitated) with dedicated emission mammotomography than with compressed breast scintimammography
