Integrated dual-modality digital breast tomosynthesis and scanning ultrasound system. Provided by Paul L. Carson and Mitchell M. Goodsitt at the University of Michigan and Kai Thomenius at GE Global Research, Niskayuna, NY. This system was developed with support by NIH R01CA 91713 and Office of Naval Research grant MDA905-00-10041.

Clinical images of a soft tissue lesion with digital mammography (A: MLO view) and multi-planar reconstructions (B: Coronal, C: Axial, and D: Sagittal views) with dedicated BCT. (Courtesy: Koning Corporation, West Henrietta, NY)
Conventional (attenuation) images (A, C) and phase contrast images (B, D) of accreditation phantom (top row) and lumpectomy specimen (bottom row). All images were acquired at with same entrance exposure for attenuation and phase contrast images. These images were acquired using prototype systems developed at the University of Oklahoma (Hong Liu), in collaboration with University of Alabama at Birmingham (Xizeng Wu) and University of Iowa (Laurie L. Fajardo). (Courtesy: Hong Liu, University of Oklahoma)
