Measurements of the MTF and the DQE, on images obtained using a scintillating glass optical fiber system coupled to a mammography film, are displayed in comparison with the measurements obtained by a standard mammography cassette using the same film and the same X-ray dose. The final results are favourable to the scintillating fibers. The use of a CCD read-out in the place of the mammography film is discussed.
