Abstract

Despite sufficiently high sensitivity for CAD alone no increase in radiologist sensitivity (or decrease in specificity) occurred with CAD. Improving CAD specificity, with unaffectedly high sensitivity, should make radiologists more inclined to revise interpretations according to CAD. The potential sensitivity increase, noted when using CAD as a double reader, could be realised in this way.
