A new computer-aided detection system could help identify breast cancer earlier. The system uses pattern-recognition algorithms to analyze images collected through digital mammography. It highlights suspicious spots that radiologists may have missed on first examination, prompting them to review the mammograms and determine whether further tests are necessary. According to its manufacturer, iCAD, the system detects up to 72 percent of treatable cancers an average of 15 months earlier than mammography alone.
