This subject covers the basic principles of radiation production, radiation safety and protection and instrumentation in the field of breast imaging. It extensively considers the physics of mammography and advanced mammography and explores alternate breast imaging modalities covering digital image formation and recording methods. The design and care of instrumentation relevant to breast imaging will be reviewed with emphasis on quality assurance and quality control procedures and consideration of the aspects of visual perception, image processing and analysis. Finally, this subject deals with fundamental considerations of breast dosimetry, radiation biology and radiation protection.
