Update Course in Diagnostic Radiology Physics: Overview of Tomosynthesis.

Time:

2:00 PM- 3:30 PM

Author:

Martin J. Yaffe, PhD, Mitchell M. Goodsitt, and James Talmage Dobbins, PhD

Code: RC125

Objective:

This session includes three sections. The first is Introduction to , which discusses the basic ideas of tomosynthesis and how it differs from CT. Attendees will become familiar with the major technical issues influencing image quality and clinical value of tomosynthesis. They will also understand how the material and presentations in this course are organized. The second section is History and Development of Tomosynthesis, which highlights the history and development of early film-based acquisition and display devices for tomosynthesis.  This section also discusses the history and development of image intensifier based acquisition of tomosynthesis images and their display. Attendees will lean the recent history and development of digital based acquisition of tomosynthesis images and their display. The section will discuss the history and development of reconstruction and post-processing algorithms used in tomosynthesis. The third section is Future of Tomosynthesis, which highlights the State-of-the-Art in tomosynthesis imaging. Attendees will learn the state of commercial implementation and FDA approval of tomosythesis devices. They will get updated on future work in reconstruction algorithms and dose optimization, in addition to translational issues in breast and chest tomosynthesis. This section highlights translational issues in radiation oncology applications of tomosynthesis, in addition to transitional issues in computer-aided detection and diagnosis with tomosynthesis.
