Florida Hospital Waterman's Mammography Center is a FDA certified facility. Breast screening procedures include ultrasound and low-dose mammography with computer-aided detection (CAD), a sophisticated computer program that is digitally linked to our mammography systems.
CAD has been shown in studies to increase the accuracy of mammography by up to 20%. The technology works by reviewing digitized mammograms and marking areas of suspected abnormalities. The radiologist then reviews these areas again to determine if they need further study.
CAD can enhance the radiologist’s performance by drawing attention to suspicious density changes that may have been overlooked, and it can improve the rate of detection of small breast abnormalities, thus increasing the chance of successful treatment.
