1  Digital Mammography  X ray tests  Phantoms spectra  Bilateral Project (ICM-tube X-ray) Development of a silicon detector for photon counting to be used in dual energy radiography in the range 18-40KeV

2 Digital Mammography Vantages: Better resolution Image manipulation Image Inversion Identification of other tissues Reduction of time in studies (half)

3 Silicon strip detector

4 Characteristics of SD Position identification Energy 8-30 KeV Spatial resolution um Fast electronics Low noise Low dose

5 Silicon strip detector Key system issues Fully parallel signal processing for all channels. Only binary (yes/no) information is extracted from each strip. Data from each channel must be stored in a local buffer for the whole measurement period. 64 bond wires PC computer

6 First prototype (1xRX64) 0.6  1.0 cm 2 detector RX64

7 Detector Tests Calibration through an internal pulse to obtain gain and noise estimation of the system Calibration through radiactive sources to obtain gain, noise and the absolute energy scale Detector test using a X ray tube at CINVESTAV and a mammograph at Hospital Juárez Obtain spectra with phantoms made in laboratory and an official phantom (ACR).

8 Calibration with radiation sources

9 Gain of 64 channels

10 Hospital Juárez-México Fis. Enrique Gaona (UAM-Xochimilco)

11 Scanning system – 2D image Advantages compare to 2D-systems: -reduced scatter background, -small number of the electronics channel. scanning slit

12 Activities in Mexico Caracterization and tests in hospital by A. Leyva (posdoc ALFA). -Simulation of the system by a portuguese student (ALFA). -Test with ACR phantom by Roxana de la Mora (Bil. Proj. Cuba)

13 Phantom 1 (First tests) Colimator: 250um Steps: 2 Time: 3600s/step Cd-109 (22,24keV)

14 Semiconductor diode Image Colimador: 1mm Pasos: 16 Tiempo: 600s/paso Cd-109 (22,24keV)

15 Internal image LED Collimator: 1mm Steps: 26 Time: 3600s/step Cd-109 (22,24keV)

16 Structures Images with Cd-109 Collimator: 0.5mm Steps: 26 Time: 2400s/step Cd-109 (22,24keV)

17 ACR Phantom The ACR phantom has structures that simulate microcalcifications of several sizes.

18 Internal details
