Abstract

Quantitative imaging is important in medical imaging. Physical phantoms are used. There is reason to believe that anthropomorphic physical phatoms are better than uniform phantoms. To investigate this question, we develop a novel imaging metrology with a phatient-based phantom and apply its use to several digital breast tomosytneshis machines. At the same time, we use the traditional means of assessing image quality. Our results show a strong dependence on image performance with the type of phantom used. Furthermore, we demonstrate the feasibility of this metrology in real, clinical applications.
