This paper reports the results of our preliminary investigation into developing imaging techniques for full-size digital x-ray mammography. We have explored a novel `radiation shielding, CCD scanning' concept. Two system configurations were studied: one uses a lens coupled CCD module with a mirror scanning mechanism; the other uses a lens coupled CCD which is mounted on a scanning carrier platform. Using this technique, small CCD imagers can be used effectively to cover a large field without losing spatial resolution.
