Summary of "APPLICATION OF THE EUROPEAN PROTOCOL IN THE EVALUATION OF DIGITAL MAMMOGRAPHY UNITS WITH TUNGSTEN TARGET TUBES."

The performance of the first direct digital mammography unit in Gozo General Hospital, the Hologic Selenia Dimensions 2D, was assessed by applying the European Protocol for quality control in mammography screening. This system employs a Tungsten anode in association with a Rhodium or Silver filter, depending on the compressed breast thickness. The objective of this article was to apply the European Protocol in the evaluation of this system in terms of dose, image quality and detector performance and determine whether this system is suitable for use in the national breast-screening program.
