Tomophan QA


Automated 3D image quality analysis for Digital Breast Tomosynthesis



Digital Breast Tomosynthesis (DBT) is a very different imaging modality from conventional mammography and CT. The Tomophan® Phantom has been designed to provide a complete characterization of this unique imaging system through objective measurements of key performance criteria.

The phantom measurements cover slice width and increment, Z-axis scaling and uniformity, in-slice signal drop, MTF in both X and Y directions, CNR, SNR, NPS, regional in-plane uniformity, lost chest tissue measurement, pixel size verification, and low contrast.



Image Owl’s engineers and scientists have decades of experience on the cutting edge of imaging science to bring you the highest level of accuracy. The Tomophan® QA analysis service has been tested with extensive image sets from all major DBT imager manufacturers to ensure that the widest range of image sets will be supported.

Image Owl’s close relationship with The Phantom Laboratory drives innovation in both hardware and imaging analysis and ensures that all details of the phantom design and specifications are well understood.



The test objects that make up the current Tomosynthesis Phantom embody more than three decades of scientific evaluation and field experience in medical imaging phantom development.

Led by imaging and QA thought leaders, including Dr. David Goodenough and Dr. Richard Mallozzi, Image Owl can provide deep insight into its analyses.
