    CAD Helps Expert Radiologists Detect Difficult Polyps on VC

    AuntMinnie | Erik L. Ridley

    Computer-aided detection (CAD) software can boost the performance of even expert radiologists in finding challenging polyps on virtual colonoscopy studies, say researchers from the University of Chicago. A research team led by Kenji Suzuki, PhD, found that the use of CAD software as a second reader delivered a statistically significant improvement in the sensitivity of three expert radiologists and one adequately trained radiologist in detecting difficult polyps on VC (also known as CT colonography or CTC).
