CAD Detects Cancers on CR Mammography that Go Unnoticed

June 25, 2009 – “Our research confirmed that by adding computer-aided detection, readers are better equipped to detect breast cancers that otherwise would not be identified,” said Rachel F. Brem, M.D., professor of Radiology, and vice chair of Research and Faculty Development at The George Washington University Medical Center, at the Computer Assisted Radiology and Surgery (CARS) 23rd International Congress and Exhibition being held in Berlin, Germany from June 23-27 2009.

The multicenter study evaluated the performance of computer-aided detection (CAD) with computed radiography (CR) for mammography in the detection of breast cancers that had previously been missed, using iCAD’s SecondLook Digital.

Dr. Brem’s findings showed that of the confirmed cancers, 55 percent were missed by at least one of the six readers. CAD correctly pinpointed 88 percent of all cancers, adding further evidence of the clinical need for CAD with CR.

“Even under ideal circumstances, it can be difficult for radiologists to determine what abnormalities in a mammogram could be cancerous and warrant closer evaluation,” said Dr. Brem.

In addition, special sessions on breast CAD including real-time demonstrations, panel discussions and clinical evaluations of iCAD’s technology were shared at CARS.

Original research presented by Dr. Brem further supported the use of computer-aided detection as an effective breast cancer detection tool. Dr. Brem is a member of iCAD Inc.’s board of directors.
