We use computer-aided detection (CAD) for mammography to accurately interpret mammographic images and check for the presence of breast cancer.
The CAD system puts a mammogram into digital form and then computer software searches for abnormal areas of density, mass or calcification. The system highlights suspicious areas, alerting our cancer doctors to the need for further analysis.
The CAD system may improve the detection of cancer in the breast by acting as a second set of eyes to find abnormal areas on a mammogram.
