Abstract : The Georgetown radiology research team has five separate but related grants to address key components of a digital mammography system that includes image data acquisition, image processing, and image display and communication. One of the five grants deals with administrative support functions to four related interactive grants on digital mammography. This report will summarize all four related projects in a concise format and describe the progress of development of a high performance diagnostic imaging network for digital mammography. The supported projects summarized in this report have continued to progress with promising indications that digital mammography can be clinically implemented at DOD sites by the conclusion of the projects. A new storage based CR system that has image quality that meets the requirements of mammography is being evaluated. The performance of the 3M digital mammography system has been evaluated. A computer based method for accessing image quality of mammograms is being developed. Significant progresses have been made in the research of CADx. Feasibility of telemammography has been demonstrated. A prototype of next-generation, on imaging network for mammography is under development.
