Computers Assist Breast Cancer Screening

An advanced unconventional method that harnesses computer technology for deciphering mammograms is about to make the breast cancer screening process speedier//, reliable, and efficient, while also enabling the much needed breathing time for the radiologists.

Cancer Research UK has expressed the immense potential of the proposed system, which is capable of reducing the work loads by 50%. This will indeed be a huge step towards enabling state-of-art breast care.

This novel method, labeled the Cad method will use computers to scan mammograms for anomalies or irregularities, arising from the presence of tumors. In the event of the screening turning out positive for tumor, the radiologist is alerted.

Professor Fiona Gilbert of Aberdeen University, who led the study said: "The results of this trial are very encouraging. The mammograms studied were from a sample taken in 1996 so that all cancers that developed subsequently in this group of women could be included. The study was retrospective so the radiologists taking part in the trial knew no action would be taken as a result of their decisions. We have now embarked on a new study to confirm that the Cad result is still as good when used in real day to day decision making about breast cancer diagnosis."

According to Professor Stephen Duffy, Cancer Research UK epidemiologist, this new method would permit the radiologists to focus their abilities on other important areas, that merit their attention.
