Computer Aided Detection (CAD)

CAD Acts as a Second Set of Eyes to Find Abnormal Areas on a Mammogram

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.
