Computer-Aided Detection (CAD)
Although a mammogram is an excellent way to find most breast cancers when they are small and most curable, it does not detect all breast cancers. As a result, Woman’s has adopted the latest technology to make mammograms as accurate as possible.
Computers can help doctors find abnormal areas on a mammogram by acting as another set of eyes. With a digital mammogram, the computer displays the picture on a video screen, with markers pointing to areas the radiologist should check more closely.
Our radiologists use the Computer-Aided Detection technique on each of the more than 40,000 mammograms performed every year.
