Radiographic Systems, Digital, Mammographic

Definition : Digital radiographic systems designed for radiography of the breast (i.e., mammography). These systems usually include a high-frequency, constant-potential x-ray generator (usually with a voltage ranging from 20 to 35 kV); an automatic exposure control device; filters; a collimator; patient positioning features (e.g., compression devices); and a digital imaging system. Typically, the digital imaging system consists of a phosphor imaging plate used to obtain a latent image, which is scanned with a laser and digitized in an analog-to-digital converter. Digital mammographic systems are specifically intended for imaging the breast; they are used for screening and/or assessment of breast lesions.
