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.

Name: Radiation protection dosimetry
The aim of this study was to evaluate the detection rate and diagnostic performance of 2-dimensional synthetic mammography (SM) as an adjunct to wide-angle digital breast tomosynthesis (WA-DBT) compar...
The purpose of this study was to compare the diagnostic performance of synthetic 2D imaging generated from 3D tomosynthesis (DBT) with traditional 2D full-field digital mammography (FFDM) by use of th...
Tomosynthesis (DBT) has proven to be more sensitive than digital mammography, but it requires longer reading time. We retrospectively compared accuracy and reading times of a simplified protocol with ...
Expensive and lengthy clinical trials can delay regulatory evaluation of innovative technologies, affecting patient access to high-quality medical products. Simulation is increasingly being used in pr...
This randomized phase III trial studies digital tomosynthesis mammography and digital mammography in screening patients for breast cancer. Screening for breast cancer with tomosynthesis ma...
This is a feasibility study to evaluate dual-energy (DE) contrast-enhanced (CE) digital mammography to detect breast cancer in patients with increased breast density (BI-RADS category c or...
The purpose of this study is to compare 3D mammography with digital mammography in women with dense breasts for the detection and evaluation of masses and/or breast cancer.
Tomosynthesis is an innovative technique developed in digital mammography for obtaining a sectional image of the breast. Mammography has the main disadvantage of being an imaging projectio...
The aim of the study is to compare early performance measures and economic aspects of organized breast cancer screening for women screened using digital breast tomosynthesis+synthetic mamm...
Self evaluation of whole blood glucose levels outside the clinical laboratory. A digital or battery-operated reflectance meter may be used. It has wide application in controlling unstable insulin-dependent diabetes.
The collective designation of three organizations with common membership: the European Economic Community (Common Market), the European Coal and Steel Community, and the European Atomic Energy Community (Euratom). It was known as the European Community until 1994. It is primarily an economic union with the principal objectives of free movement of goods, capital, and labor. Professional services, social, medical and paramedical, are subsumed under labor. The constituent countries are Austria, Belgium, Denmark, Finland, France, Germany, Greece, Ireland, Italy, Luxembourg, Netherlands, Portugal, Spain, Sweden, and the United Kingdom.
