Project Title: Design of a patient adaptive digital breast tomosynthesis

Project Summary: Within the scope of this project, it is aimed to design a new 3-dimensional low-dose patient adaptive breast imaging system, which will address the limitations of commercial digital breast tomosynthesis systems such as the increased dose compared to mammography, unrealistic assumptions (uniformity assumption of breast in spatial and frequency space), far from being patient specific or dependent, and the fact that different brands have very different geometries and scan parameters.
