Table 3 Water filled phantom characteristics

From: Effective radiation attenuation calibration for breast density: compression thickness influences and correction

  Comp. Force (N) xm
max x-distance (mm)
mean 77.4 568.0 1169.1 2.37 1.48 86
SD 34.1 109.9 111.2 0.78 0.66 60
  1. This gives the distribution means and standard deviations (SDs) for the compression force, maximum bulge height coordinates (xm, ym ), the bulge height (hm), the related Hm height, and the maximum distance along the x-direction phantom/paddle contact (last column).
