AAPM-EFOMP WG on breast dosimetry

Publication Date: Jan 7th, 2019 09:40, Category: EFOMP Announcements

This joint WG/TG will develop and disseminate a new model and corresponding methodology to estimate the breast average glandular dose (AGD) from x-ray based image acquisitions including standard mammography, contrast-enhanced mammography, and breast tomosynthesis. The developed method will include the definitions of a reference incident air kerma measurement procedure, reference breast representations, and conversion factors to estimate the AGD from the reference measurements. Recommendations regarding the use and limitations of these different metrics will be included.
