Evaluating automated density maps for local breast density assessment

 

 

By Dr A Oliver


In this article we summarize our recent study where we evaluated the consistency of the spatial glandular volumetric tissue distribution provided by Volpara software. To that end, we used repeated pairs of mammograms, which were acquired in a slightly changed position of the breast. We found that the Volpara
Density Maps tool is reliable in estimating the local glandular tissue distribution, being robust to small variations of the acquisition angle and in the beam energy, although divergences may arise due to different breast compression conditions.
