Abstract
Mamografija je najvažnija dijagnostička metoda za rano otkrivanje tumora dojke. Cilj je radiologa imati najbolju moguću dijagnostičku informaciju uz prihvatljivu dozu zračenja za bolesnika. Kakvoća slike i doza zračenja ovisi o velikom broju čimbenika kao što su brzina i kontrast filma, razvijanje filma, napon i automatski nadzor ekspozicije mamografskoga uređaja, te veličina i gustoća dojke. Uz to, uvjeti gledanja slike mogu značajno utjecati na točnost mamografske informacije. S obzirom na veliki broj čimbenika koji su važni za dobru dijagnostičku informaciju, postoji velika mogućnost pogreške. Ponovljive mamografske slike visoke kakvoće, uz razumno malu dozu ...
