[Tutorial Invited Lecture] Multi-Modality Breast CAD
Maryellen L. Giger (Univ. of Chicago)
Abstract (in Japanese) (See Japanese page) 
(in English) Beneficial interpretation of a breast imaging examination depends on the quality of the medical images as well as the ability of the radiologists who interpret those images. This presentation reviews various CAD methods in breast imaging (mammography, ultrasound, and MRI), which are focused on the characterization of lesions and the estimation of the probability of malignancy for use in the diagnostic workup of suspect lesions. CAD systems in diagnostic workup usually involve having the computer extract the margin of the lesion from the surrounding parenchyma, extract characteristics (features) of the lesions, merge these computer-extracted features into an estimate of the probability of malignancy, and as an option, retrieve automatically similar lesions from an online reference library. The aim of CAD in diagnostic workup is to increase classification sensitivity and specificity as well as to reduce intra- and inter-observer variability. This lecture will review CAD for mammography, breast ultrasound, and breast MRI, demonstrate levels of robustness, and comment on the future of multi-modality breast CAD.
