Published Institute of Physics & Engineering In Medicine: 2005: IPEM Report Series
Report 89 revises and updates ‘The Commissioning and Routine Testing of Mammographic X-Ray Systems Report 59’ first published in 1989, a standard reference in UK Medical Physics Departments. The emphasis of Report 89 is the optimization and assessment of the system as a whole. The report includes a new chapter on the theory and technology of digital imaging. Other revisions have been made to incorporate the testing of x-ray units with automatic beam optimization software, changes to the new standard breast model, and to provide details on the methodology of image quality assessment.
