A New Technique Utilizes Spectral Mammography to Measure Breast Density

Dr. Sabee Molloi from the School of Medicine at the University of California, Irvine, worked with a team on a study using spectral mammography to develop a quantitative technique to measure volumetric breast density. Their technique also enables a lower dose to be used for a screening mammogram. Two members of the team, Justin Ducote and Huanjun Ding, describe the research, which they presented at the 2012 annual meeting of the American Association of Physicists in Medicine.
