Mammography phototimer technique chart

Academic Article


  • A phototimer technique chart for mammography is presented along with the methodology used to design it. The chart is based on accurate measurement of breast thickness and helps overcome the inability of the phototimer to track as breast thickness varies. In clinical practice, the chart results in the consistent attainment of optimally exposed films and decreased number of retakes.
