The dose delivered to the glandular tissue during mammography is referred to as the average glandular dose. As this dose is associated with the risk of radiation-induced cancer, it is important to monitor it. In the Netherlands mammography phantoms, simulating so-called standard-model breasts, are used for this monitoring process. Ramona Bouwman investigates whether these phantoms provide an accurate indication of the radiation exposure involved.
