With the rapid advancement of technology in the medical field and with the application of new breast imaging technologies, including digital breast tomosynthesis, full-field digital mammography, and breast CT, it is important to follow the cancer screening recommendations of the ACR and to understand how radiation dose is measured in breast imaging and which method of measuring and recording dose to the breast is the most effective.
Radiation exposure to the breast may be confusing when considering all these breast imaging techniques. Therefore, radiologic technologists and physicians shall understand the value of a technique before making any decisions about which to use.
In this module, we will show the breast anatomy, discuss different types of breast cancer, show how breast density may affect breast cancer diagnosis, explore different breast screening techniques, explain how radiation exposure can be measured, and discuss radiation dose with each of these breast imaging techniques.
