Abstract : This report summarizes activity in the two principal areas. (1) Preparation for Diagnostic Imaging Mammography Certification and (2) Dissertation research on Breast Imaging using Ultrasound Diffraction Tomography techniques. The first task included completion of clinical rotation courses in X-ray radiography and CT, Nuclear Medicine,- MRI, and Ultrasound Imaging. Quality assurance of diagnostic imaging equipment including mammography systems and radiation shielding evaluations were carried out at several institutions. Dissertation research focused on the performance of two ultrasound diffraction tomography systems developed for breast imaging.
