VOXMAM

A breast tissue simulating test object designed to be used to compare image quality between different exposure parameters within a single system or across different breast tomosynthesis systems.

VOXMAM consists of the following:

  • Standard breast thickness (45mm) 220mm diameter semi-circle comprising breast tissue simulating material encased in PMMA.
  • 4x groups of particles representing micro-calcifications randomly located in the XY plane and at approximately 10mm intervals in the Z plane.

Please note: each VOXMAM is unique in its spatial distribution of structural detail, and as such specific locations for calcifications can not be given.
