Full Field Digital Mammography (FFDM) has been approved now for more than 13 years.  During this time there have been many advancements and changes in applications and technology.

Your mammography equipment is evolving and the anode and filter combinations use for decades are rapidly changing with digital mammography. Since digital contrast is not influenced by kVp; can we use higher kVp and lower mAs to create images superior to film-screen? 

This material includes an update of current clinical applications and the physics of digital mammography.  This presentation will complete the theory of digital imaging specifically to mammography.  The last modality to go digital!  You will gain valuable knowledge and understand this amazing evolving technology we use to save lives every day!
