We present the system and the first images of a laboratory scanner for X-ray cone-beam breast computed tomography (CBBCT). This modular and versatile apparatus allows for testing various setup parameters for CBBCT, including fan-beam, cone-beam or helical scans and intensity or kilovoltage modulated scans. It also allows to implement digital breast tomosynthesis. Preliminary CT scans of test objects will be shown. The scanner design includes also two compact gamma cameras on the rotating gantry in order to perform combined CT and SPECT imaging, in a future version of the device.

Abstract

We present the system and the first images of a laboratory scanner for X-ray cone-beam breast computed tomography (CBBCT). This modular and versatile apparatus allows for testing various setup parameters for CBBCT, including fan-beam, cone-beam or helical scans and intensity or kilovoltage modulated scans. It also allows to implement digital breast tomosynthesis. Preliminary CT scans of test objects will be shown. The scanner design includes also two compact gamma cameras on the rotating gantry in order to perform combined CT and SPECT imaging, in a future version of the device.
