Abstract
This work seeks to utilize a cohort of computational, patient-based breast phantoms and anthropomorphic lesions inserted therein to determine trends in breast lesion detectability as a function of several clinically relevant variables. One of the measures of local density proposed gives rise to a statistically significant trend in lesion detectability, and it is apparent that lesion type is also a predictor of relative detectability.
