We retrospectively compared the accuracy of two computer-aided detection (CAD) systems for the detection of malignant breast lesions on full-field digital mammograms. Mammograms of 326 patients were analyzed (117 patients with breast cancer, 209 negative cases), and each set of cases was read by two CAD systems (Second Look versus AccuDetect Galileo). True-positive fractions per image and case for soft densities, microcalcifications, and total cancers were assessed. Study results showed better overall performance of AccuDetect Galileo (when compared to Second Look) in detecting masses, microcalcifications, and all cancer types, especially in extremely dense breast parenchyma.
