  • Publication number: 20200100746
    Abstract: A radiation source of a mammography apparatus includes plural first radiation tubes and one second radiation tube. The first radiation tubes are used for tomosynthesis imaging. In contrast, the second radiation tube is used for pre-imaging which is performed before the tomosynthesis imaging in order to set the irradiation conditions of radiation in the tomosynthesis imaging. The first radiation tubes are provided at plural positions where the focuses of the radiation are set so as to be arranged in a linear shape or an arc shape at equal intervals. The second radiation tube is provided at a position that is offset from the plural positions where the first radiation tubes are provided to a rear side which is a side opposite to the irradiation side of the radiation.

  • Publication number: 20200100745
    Abstract: A pre-imaging control unit of a mammography apparatus selects one pre-imaging focus from plural focuses of a radiation source according to selection conditions which are preset in order to prevent the concentration of load on one of the focuses. Pre-imaging for setting the irradiation conditions of radiation in tomosynthesis imaging is performed using the selected pre-imaging focus. For example, the selection conditions indicate that the pre-imaging focus is changed in each pre-imaging operation and the focus of a radiation tube adjacent to the radiation tube whose focus has been used in the previous pre-imaging is selected as the pre-imaging focus.
