This book constitutes the refereed proceedings of the 13th International Workshop on Breast Imaging, IWDM 2016, held in Malmö, Sweden, in June 2016.

The 35 revised full papers and 50 revised poster papers presented together with 6 invited talks were carefully reviewed and selected from 89 submissions. The papers are organized in topical sections on screening; CAD; mammography, tomosynthesis, and breast CT; novel technology; density assessment and tissue analysis; dose and classification; image processing, CAD, breast density, and new technology; contrast-enhanced imaging; phase contrast breast imaging; simulations and virtual clinical trials.

This volume of Springer’s Lecture Notes in Computer Scienceseries comprises the scientific proceedings of the 13thInternational Workshop on Breast Imaging (IWDM2016), which was held June 19–22 in Malmö, Sweden. This workshop was formerly called the International Workshop on Digital Mammography, IWDM for short. Although the term“Digital Mammography”was changed to“Breast Imaging”startingat the meeting in 2012, we still kept the familiar abbreviation“IWDM.”This new name was chosen to recognize clearly the movement in breast imaging from mammography toward recent emerging technologies and multimodality imaging solutions.
The IWDM meetings traditionally bring together a diversity of researchers (physicists, mathematicians, computer scientists, and engineers), clinicians (radiologists, surgeons, radiographers), and representatives of industry, who are jointly committed to developing technology for the early detection of breast cancer and subsequent patient management. The conference series was initiated at a 1993 meeting of the SPIE in San Jose, with subsequent meetings hosted every two years. Previous meetings have been held in York (1994), Chicago (1996), Nijmegen (1998), Toronto (2000), Bremen (2002), Durham (2004), Manchester (2006), Tucson (2008), Girona (2010), Philadelphia (2012), and Gifu (2014). A total of 89 papers from around 20 countries were submitted to IWDM 2016. Each of the abstracts along with the four-page supporting documents was reviewed in a double-blinded process by two members of the Scientific Committee, which led to a final selection of 35 oral presentations and 50 posters during the two- and- a- half days of sequential scientific sessions. Six invited speakers gave excellent lectures on the current state of the art in their respective field of expertise. The 85 peer-reviewed papers in this proceedings volume (LNCS 9699) constitute a comprehensive state of the art in breast imaging today. Invited speakers who are working as radiologists, medical physicists at hospitals, and researcher in universities or companies were chosen. Dr. Sophia Zackrisson of Lund University at Skåne University Hospital, Sweden, discussed the results from the MalmöBreast Tomosynthesis Screening Trial, which included 15,000 women investigated separately with breast tomosynthesis and with digital mammography. Prof. Nico Karssemeijer at Radboud University Medical Centre, The Netherlands, gave a lecture on texture analysis and CAD of breast images. Dr. Savannah Partridge, at the University of Washington in Seattle, USA, summarized the current state of the art in breast MRI and quantitative breast imaging. Prof. Per Hall at Karolinska Institutet in Stockholm, Sweden, described the possibilities to perform individualized breast cancer screening based on the experiences from the KARMA study. Dr. Eva Maria Fallenberg from Charité Universitätsmedizin Berlin, Germany, discussed the new diagnostic possibilities of spectral mammography. Finally, Prof. Marco Stampanoni, ETH Zürich, Switzerland, gave a lecture on X-ray phase contrast mammography
