|Issue Date:||27-Feb-2023||metadata.dc.date:||2023||Publication information:||Journal of Medical Radiation Sciences 2023||Abstract:||Mammographic imaging can cause considerable stress and anxiety for some patients and may require someone to remain in the room during the procedure to provide both physical and emotional support. As such, these comforters and carers (C&C) are exposed to ionising radiation. Limited evidence is available stating the radiation dose received during a digital breast tomosynthesis (DBT) examination. This research aims to determine the optimal standing position for a C&C in the mammography room during a DBT mammogram that results in the lowest radiation dose, whilst providing high-quality imaging, care and comfort to the patient.||URI:||https://ahro.austin.org.au/austinjspui/handle/1/32278||DOI:||10.1002/jmrs.649||ORCID:||0000-0002-0334-762X
