Digital mammography with CAD is different from conventional mammography in how the image of the breast is viewed and, more importantly, how the image is manipulated. Digital mammography allows the radiologist to magnify images, increase or decrease contrast and invert the black and white values while reading the images. These features allow the radiologist to evaluate micro-calcifications and focus on areas of concern.
Computer-aided detection (CAD) From a digitally acquired image, the CAD software then searches for abnormal areas of mass, density, or calcification that may indicate the presence of cancer. With CAD systems, radiologists have a means to overcome the known limitations of human interpretation of mammograms. Studies have shown that CAD significantly increases radiologist sensitivity for the detection of breast cancer.
