Abstract
An enhanced mammographic imaging process has been developed which is based on the conventional powder-toner selenium technology used in the Xerox 125/126 x-ray imaging system. The process is derived from improvements in the amorphous selenium x-ray photoconductor, the blue powder toner and the aerosol powder dispersion process. Comparisons of image quality and x-ray dose using the Xerox aluminum-wedge breast phantom and the Radiation Measurements Model 152D breast phantom have been made between the new Enhanced Process, the standard Xerox 125/126 System and screen-film at mammographic x-ray exposure parameters typical for each modality. When comparing the Enhanced Xeromammographic Process with the standard 125/126 System, a distinct advantage is seen for the Enhanced equivalent mass detection and superior fiber and speck detection. The broader imaging latitude of enhanced and standard Xeroradiography, in comparison to film, is illustrated in images made using the aluminum-wedge breast phantom.
