2010 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
This paper reports on a further development of an image simulation chain, and in particular, the inclusion of contrast degradation across an image using scatter to primary ratios calculated using Monte  ...  The Monte Carlo technique, using the Geant4 toolkit, has been implemented to model the scatter conditions when imaging the CDMAM phantom with commercial digital mammography.  ...  The author would like to thank GE, Hologic, Siemens and Agfa for providing technical information used in the simulations.  ...
