Abstract

Introduction: Dual-modality imaging with X-ray mammography, Takes advantage of the strengths of each technique to improve clinical diagnostic capabilities, X-ray has high spatial resolution and provides superior structural information, But, sensitivity of mammography is about 86% [1], X-ray does not relate degree of malignancy and is ionizing, Whereas blood volume, oxygen saturation, water and lipid distributions could specify degree of malignancy of tumor, Enhances ability to use x-ray measurements as a prior for DOT.
