Computer-Aided Detection for Breast Imaging Now Available

Radiologists at Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center are using computer-aided detection (CAD) to second-read mammograms at the Center’s Breast Examination Center of Harlem (BECH). The technology uses a computer to scan mammograms for abnormalities and, according to a new study in the September issue of Radiology, may improve early detection of breast cancer with screening mammography by almost 20 percent.
