For mammography research, the Zhou Laboratory uses Rachel anthropomorphic breast phantom and BR12 to find the optimal acquisition techniques for the optimal automatic exposure control (AEC).

Both the figure-of-merit calculation and visual comparison from the lesion simulation on the breast showed automatic exposure control Table 1 as a better option, especially for microcalcification detection.

On the research of computed tomography, the Zhou Lab has identified the relationship of minimum detectable contrast to lesion size and patient dose using a power law model and incorporated the patient size dependency in the proportionality factor.
