Abstract
This study aims to verify the relationship of MGD between four different types of manufacturing mammograms and models and to verify patient characteristic factors and GDM. Using the Volpara software were analyzed a total of 7,000 3D and 2D images. From this analysis were obtained the breast volume density (DVB) and the MGD. Using the DICOM header of the image, we collected the patient's age and compressed breast thickness. The sample of patients presented a mean of 57 (±15) mm of compressed breast thickness(CBT) for the Hologic equipment (range from 19.82 to 100.75 mm) and the medians for the other variables were 51 years (range 25 to 87 years old), 1.75 mGy MGD (0.43 to 4.68 mGy range), and 7.61% DVB (2.16% to 36.89% range). The MGD for GE Senoclaire system and Hologic were higher compared the other evaluated tomosynthesis systems as also higher for MLO projection when compared to CC projection. The Siemens equipment was the system that gave the lowest dose in all breast thicknesses evaluated.
