Dear Ultrasound Insider,

Ultrasound is useful across a range of applications, not the least of which is the diagnosis of breast cancer. Because ultrasound tends to be less expensive to use than other imaging modalities -- and it doesn't impart radiation -- it's no wonder that the use of the modality has been on the rise.

Yet despite its benefits, ultrasound does have a key limitation: user variability. To mitigate this, researchers have experimented with using computer-aided diagnosis (CAD) with ultrasound, and studies show that CAD does, in fact, improve overall radiologist performance. But can CAD also improve the performance of breast imagers at different experience levels?

A South Korean research team says yes. The group found that using CAD with breast ultrasound improves the diagnostic performance of breast imagers who have different levels of experience. Find out more in our Insider Exclusive.
