Volpara Dose RT’s new features
VolparaDoseRT adds a new set of functions to the Volpara Density scorecard. This software uses the volumetric quantitative data from the Volpara Density software and calculates patient-specific mean glandular dose (MGD) per image. The results of VolparaDoseRT will vary from the indicated dose of the X-ray manufacturer. The reason is that VolparaDoseRT makes no assumptions about the distribution of fat to glandular tissue, which is done by conventional algorithms, but VolparaDoseRT always uses the volumetrically calculated data of VolparaDensity.
