Abstract

Digital breast tomosynthesis (DBT) differs from conventional mammography in target/filter, kVp range, and imaging geometry. The aim of this study was to assess the breast input exposure of a DBT system by completing a workload survey of DBT installations, and to determine the parameters α, β, and γ in the Archer equation for the primary radiation generated by the clinical workload distributions.
