This course provides the participant with an detailed overview of the image formation
process in digital mammography and 3D mammography (stereoscopic imaging, breast
tomosynthesis and breast CT). Methods to quantify image quality, breast dosimetry and (the philosophy of) technical quality evaluations for mammography equipment in screening will be discussed, including the challenges of quality evaluations of emerging technologies like breast tomosynthesis. Not only are the relevant physics and technical aspects discussed, but also other aspects of breast imaging (and screening) in radiology, radiography and epidemiology are covered. This multidisciplinary aspect is important for a Medical Physics Expert in high level
trouble shooting and setting up projects.
Aims: This module aims to help the future MPE acquire the knowledge, skills and
competences necessary to exercise a leadership role within diagnostic and screening mammography in his own country and in Europe. The content of the module will provide the knowledge to assess (screening) quality and to perform high level trouble shooting. In the face-to-face phase participants will have the opportunity to discuss the major issues directly with the present European leaders of the profession.
