Poster Information
Abstract: The teaching of mammography X-ray physics forms an important part of several professional qualifications, including Radiology, Radiography and Medical Physics.

Teaching X-ray imaging physics via lectures can lead to low levels of student engagement and may not allow students to adequately link underlying theory with clinical practice.

We have addressed these issues by designing and implementing a software tool called MX-RayCalc, that simulates mammography X-ray production and transport, to create an interactive environment to support learning in either an instructor-led or self-directed environment.
