Abstract

X-ray image pixel intensity and optical scattering are compared for 11 normal subjects to assess the feasibility of using X-ray imaging as a surrogate for optical scattering in NIR spectral tomography. Digital breast tomosynthesis exams, as well as twenty single point reflectance measurements of optical breast scattering are compared for a wide variety of breast sizes and densities to determine if scattering can be accurately predicted based on x-ray attenuation. If implemented, x-ray based scattering estimation will decrease exam time and cost as well as simplify the design of a newly developed integrated near infrared spectral tomography and digital breast tomosynthesis imaging system.
