Look here ! Computer-Aided Diagnosis • CAD provides human readers with • location (and characterization) of potential lesions • final diagnostic decision is made by the reader !!
Expected Benefits of CAD • Improve diagnostic performance • increase sensitivity and specificity • decrease inter- and intra-reader variability • Improve productivity • read more cases without significantly increasing interpretation time • Improve patient management • provide patients with exams options • provide physicians with decision support
Decision support Visualization CAD Image acquisition Diagnosis Segmentation & Quantification Recognition & Modeling
High-throughput Medicine with CAD • Feedback diagnostic results while a patient is on the scanner table. • Determine whether the patient requires further scanning or to be sent to the OC. Real-timediagnosis Fiber channel Scannedimages HPC CAD Server MDCT Scanner
