Resumo: Background: Research has established large variations in breast compression force within and between practitioners. A requirement, therefore, exists for to standardize compression to improve client experience whilst minimising radiation dose and image quality differences. Rationale: A new approach to breast compression, using pressure rather than force, has been suggested to reduce patient discomfort and improve consistency. Using this approach, the optimal pressure, based on breast detector footprint and thickness, has not been investigated.
