Abstract (en)

[origin: WO0138937A1] In mammographic imaging, the means used to receive image data are often cassettes with an actual image data receiving medium, such as a film, placed inside the cassette. The cassette is positioned in a cassette tunnel or similar space provided in the imaging area of the imaging apparatus. By having the labeling of the film performed in conjunction with the imaging process itself before removal of the cassette from the cassette tunnel, labeling errors due to the reasons stated above are avoided and working efficiency is improved as the separate operation of labeling of films is left out.
