In this presentation, we demonstrate a working prototype of an optical breast imaging system using parallel-paddle architecture with dual-direction scanning, of which the designed module can be incorporated with a mammographic system for the acquisition of optical transmission and reflection information in both directions of up-down and down-up. Additionally, the scanning module enables to move with a designated pitch to accommodate varied breast size for acquiring adequate data to reconstruct the images. Currently, continuous-wave near infrared illumination modules are used for experimentation. The feasibility will be presented by phantom test.
