November 28, 2016 -- Computer-aided detection (CAD) developer iCAD is touting two studies at RSNA 2016 that show CAD's ability to aid in breast cancer detection.

A study by Dr. Richard Benedikt involved 20 radiologists who retrospectively reviewed 240 digital tomosynthesis cases in a multireader, multicase crossover design. He found that the use of iCAD's concurrent CAD system decreased radiologist reading time 29.2% on average without sacrificing performance compared with reading results without CAD.

The second study by Dr. Corinne Balleyguier involved six radiologists who read 80 digital breast tomosynthesis cases. Results of the pilot study showed that the use of the concurrent iCAD system decreased radiologist reading time 23.5% on average without sacrificing performance, as compared with reading without CAD.
