Computer-Aided Detection

Computer-aided detection is now the standard of care for mammography.

Finger Lakes Health's Women's Health Services department uses the Hologic R2 ImageChecker CAD system for screening and diagnostics.

The performance of the ImageChecker CAD system is very good, particularly with the detection of very subtle microcalcification clusters.  Clinical diagnostic claims mirrored those for which R2 Technology subsequently received FDA approval, indicating that use of the ImageChecker improved detection by up to 23.4 percent.

The ImageChecker CAD system improves the ability of the radiologist to detect breast cancer by pointing out an area that may have initially been overlooked.
