Numerical Approaches for Solving the Combined Reconstruction and Registration of Digital Breast Tomosynthesis (2012)
Abstract / truncated to 115 words
Heavy demands on the development of medical imaging modalities for breast cancer detection have been witnessed in the last three decades in an attempt to reduce the mortality associated with the disease. Recently, Digital Breast Tomosynthesis (DBT) shows its promising in the early diagnosis when lesions are small. In particular, it offers potential benefits over X-ray mammography - the current modality of choice for breast screening - of increased sensitivity and specificity for comparable X-ray dose, speed, and cost. An important feature of DBT is that it provides a pseudo-3D image of the breast. This is of particular relevance for heterogeneous dense breasts of young women, which can inhibit detection of cancer using conventional mammography. ... toggle 4 keywordsdigital breast tomosynthesis registration – digital breast tomosynthesis reconstruction – inverse problems – breast imaging.
