Speakers: Hilde Bosmans, Ph.D.

Breast x-ray imaging, and in particular breast cancer screening, can only be successful with top level quality of the x-ray modalities and, associated to this, also optimal radiographic technique. Classical quality assurance protocols fail in testing some of the components in the imaging chain. Virtual imaging trials can provide an essential tool in this area, which has been the work of our team and several other teams worldwide. In this talk, I will review some of the virtual imaging trial platforms used in breast x-ray imaging research and illustrate their potential with a few examples.
