Impulse response and Modulation Transfer Function analysis for Shift-And-Add and Back Projection image reconstruction algorithms in Digital Breast Tomosynthesis (DBT).


Journal Article

Breast cancer is second only to lung cancer as the leading cause of non-preventable cancer death in women. Digital Breast Tomosynthesis (DBT) is a promising technique to improve early breast cancer detection. In this paper, we present the impulse response and Modulation Transfer Function (MTF) analysis to quantitatively compare Shift-And-Add (SAA) and point-by-point Back Projection (BP) three-dimensional image reconstruction algorithms in DBT. A Filtered Back Projection (FBP) deblurring algorithm based on point-by-point BP was used to demonstrate deblurred tomosynthesis images.
