Phase-contrast enhanced mammography: A new diagnostic tool for breast imaging


Wang, Zhentian; Thuering, Thomas; David, Christian; Roessl, Ewald; Trippel, Mafalda; Kubik-Huch, Rahel A; Singer, Gad; Hohl, Michael K; Hauser, Nik; Stampanoni, Marco (2012). Phase-contrast enhanced mammography: A new diagnostic tool for breast imaging. In: International Workshop on X-ray and Neutron Phase Imaging with Gratings, Tokyo, Japan, 5 March 2012 - 7 March 2012, 103-106.

Abstract

Phase contrast and scattering-based X-ray imaging can potentially revolutionize the radiological approach to breast imaging by providing additional and complementary information to conventional, absorption-based methods. We investigated native, non-fixed whole breast samples using a grating interferometer with an X-ray tube-based configuration. Our approach simultaneously recorded absorption, differential phase contrast and small-angle scattering signals. The results show that this novel technique - combined with a dedicated image fusion algorithm - has the potential to deliver enhanced breast imaging with complementary information for an improved diagnostic process.
