Abstract

We have assessed phantom image quality from a number of commercially available Full Field Digital Mammography (FFDM) systems. Image quality, contrast to noise ratio (CNR) and signal to noise ratio (SNR) were evaluated at various technique factors to assess the effect of detector noise on image quality, detector dynamic range and quantum limited operating region.
