Hot topics from Arizona - well you would expect that wouldn"t you!

Last week was the 9th International Workshop on Digital Mammography in Tuscon, Arizona.

Most of the papers given are already online - at SpringerLink

Hot topics were Tomosynthesis, Dual Energy mammography - some using subtraction techniques, and others using contrast enhancement.

John Boone, a physicist from UC Davis in Sacramento also was describing his experience with Breast CT using a cone beam - good for resolution, equivalent radiation dose, but not so good for calcifications.
