Artificial Intelligence for Digital Breast Tomosynthesis - Reader Study Results

The addition of DBT to full-field digital mammography (FFDM) improves radiologist performance by increasing cancer detection rates [1-4] and lowering recall rates [2-7], but also increases reading time almost two-fold [1, 8, 9], compared to 2D alone. Thus, ProFound AI was designed to maintain or improve radiologist clinical performance, while significantly reducing reading time.
