Mammography aided by computer

American doctors are using a computer to do a double check on mammograms.Women are encouraged to have regular mammogram tests to check for early breast cancer, the decision on diagnosis should be accurate. Researchers at the Sloan-Kettering Cancer Research Centre are now using computer-aided detection (CAD) to help analyse lesions that a first exam cannot diagnose.//

The radiologist makes the final decision, but each mammogram is read first by the radiologist and then by the computer. CAD helps by pointing out lesions that might have been overlooked in the initial exam. It's as if the radiologist had a second pair of highly-trained eyes to help confirm the diagnosis. The hope is that the new method will help women have more confidence in mammography as a way of helping them beat breast cancer, through the earliest possible diagnosis.
