In this investigation, we imaged a standard breast phantom and compared the contrast detail curves from a prototype full breast digital mammography system with the corresponding curves for a conventional, analog screen-film system. The full breast digital system exhibited superior contrast detail detectability. The results from this study will be used to plan future clinical evaluations comparing full breast digital and screen film mammography.
