Abstract [en]

The primary aim of the present work was to analyze the effects of varying scatter-to-primary ratios on the appearance of simulated nodules in chest tomosynthesis section images. Monte Carlo simulations of the chest tomosynthesis system GE Definium 8000 VolumeRAD (GE Healthcare, Chalfont St. Giles, UK) were used to investigate the variation of scatter-to-primary ratios between different angular projections. The simulations were based on a voxel phantom created from CT images of an anthropomorphic chest phantom. An artificial nodule was inserted at 80 different positions in the simulated phantom images, using five different approaches for the scatter-to-primary ratios in the insertion process. One approach included individual determination of the scatter-to primary-ratio for each projection image and nodule location, while the other four approaches were using mean value, median value and zero degree projection value of the scatter-to-primary ratios at each nodule position as well as using a constant scatter-to-primary ratio of 0.5 for all nodule positions. The results indicate that the scatter-to-primary ratios vary up to a factor of 10 between the different angular tomosynthesis projections (±15°). However, the error in the resulting nodule contrast introduced by not taking all variations into account is in general smaller than 10 %.
