AIM To compare readers' performance in detecting architectural distortion (AD) compared with other breast cancer types using digital mammography. MATERIALS AND METHODS Forty-one experienced breast screen readers (20 US and 21 Australian) were asked to read a single test set of 30 digitally acquired mammographic cases. Twenty cases had abnormal findings(More)
INTRODUCTION Test sets have been increasingly utilised to augment clinical audit in breast screening programmes; however, their relationship has never been satisfactorily understood. This study examined the relationship between mammographic test set performance and clinical audit data. METHODS Clinical audit data over a 2-year period was generated for(More)

This study assesses whether radiologists who regularly undertake the education in the form of the Breast Reader Assessment Strategy (BREAST) demonstrate any changes in mammography interpretation performance over time.

INTRODUCTION This study aims to evaluate the effectiveness of zooming in improving screen-reader performance in reporting digital mammograms. METHOD Two experiments were conducted. In the first experiment, 5 readers were asked to report 59 two-view bilateral mammograms retrospectively with zooming function turned off. The second session was similar to the(More)
