Publication of “Full-field digital mammography with gridless acquisition and software-based scatter correction: Investigation of dose savings and image quality”1
Andreas Fieselmann, Daniel Fische, Ghani Hilal, Frank Dennerlein, Thomas Mertelmeier, and Detlev Uhlenbrock investigated dose saving and image quality of gridless acquisition in combination with software-based scatter correction. The results show that similar image quality (contrast-to-noise ratio and contrast-detail visibility) can be obtained with this alternative acquisition and post-processing scheme at reduced dose.
Mean glandular dose survey of 2D mammograms acquired with the Siemens Mammomat Inspiration system
Hilde Bosmans, Koen Michielsen, Kim Lemmens, and Jurgen Jacobs show that mean glandular doses with Mammomat Inspiration are among the lowest in DR mammography and are significantly lower than film-screen data.

Automated Breast Volume Scanning: Visualization of Mammographically Occult Breast Cancer – Two Cases
Bruce A. Porter, MD, and Heike Seck illustrate the role that the ACUSON S2000 Automated Breast Volume Scanner (ABVS) could play as an adjunct to mammography for early diagnosis, detection, and evaluation of breast cancer.
Automated Breast Volume Scanning: 3D Ultrasound of the Breast
Roel Mus, MD, and Matthieu Rutten, MD, PhD show that reducing subjectivity and operator-dependent bias from ultrasound, Automated Breast Volume Scanning (ABVS), and 3D ultrasound opens the door to new applications in mammary diagnostics and beyond.
The Role of 3D Total Breast Ultrasound in Breast Imaging
Coventry Louisy, MD, shows that Automated Breast Volume Scanning (ABVS) has the potential to assist physicians in the detection of occult abnormalities in dense breast tissue.
