Mammographic film reading is a demanding task, and the perception of these small features is a great challenge. Radiologists differ substantially in their interpretation of screening mammography. CAD is designed to help radiologists increase the cancer detection rate by reducing the number of false-negatives (missed cancers), and to decrease the interobserver variability, which is a serious problem in mammographic screening. Perception errors may pose great difficulty in digital soft-copy reading in batch mode, when a large number of images are interpreted in a darkened room.
