A computer-aided detection system for the evaluation of breast cancer by mammographic appearance and lesion size
American Journal of Roentgenology
OBJECTIVE. The purpose of our study was to evaluate the performance of a computer-aided detection (CAD) system in the detection of breast cancer based on mammographic appearance and lesion size. CONCLUSION. The CAD system correctly marked most biopsy-proven breast cancers, with a greater sensitivity for microcalcification than for mass lesions but with no significant difference in performance based on cancer size. CAD was highly effective in detecting even the smallest lesions, with a sensitivity of 92% for lesions of 5 mm or less. CAD is a useful tool for the detection of breast cancer. © American Roentgen Ray Society.
