OBJECTIVE The purpose of this article is to describe structured reporting and the development of large databases for use in data mining in breast imaging. CONCLUSION The results of millions of breast imaging examinations are reported with structured tools based on the BI-RADS lexicon. Much of these data are stored in accessible media. Robust computing power creates great opportunity for data scientists and breast imagers to collaborate to improve breast cancer detection and optimize screening… 

Big Data Solutions for Controversies in Breast Cancer Treatment.

Big Data Integration Case Study for Radiology Data Sources

A case study of data integration for radiology data sources is described, which shows that rather than being a single step, data integration is an iterative process that requires continuous integration of metadata and additional supporting data sources.

Structured prostate MRI reporting: how and why

The author reviews the benefits of structured reporting templates with a focus on prostate MRI, prior studies on this topic, and details of a suggested template.

Correlating mammographic and pathologic findings in clinical decision support using natural language processing and data mining methods

The imaging characteristics of breast cancer subtypes have been described previously, but without standardization of parameters for data mining, and the preponderance of unstructured narrative text limits usable output.

Imaging Informatics: 25 Years of Progress.

The next 25 years offer remarkable opportunities for informatics and medical imaging together to lead to further advances in both disciplines and to improve health.

In order to particular tasks based on reduced high-dimensional omics data of dimensional reduction applying proposed distance measure is designed with distribution function based on PDF and CDF using designed average function and distance measure.

Quality Management of Pulmonary Nodule Radiology Reports Based on Natural Language Processing

The results show that NLP can be used on Chinese radiology reports to extract structured information at the content level, thereby realizing the prompt and intelligent follow- up suggestion generation or post-quality management of follow-up recommendations.


Information obtained through radiological examinations should be stored in a structured way so that they can be retrieved and searched with easy and agility, possibility clinical and scientific research and enabling a better compression of the report.



Information Extraction for Clinical Data Mining: A Mammography Case Study

A general scheme for concept information retrieval from free text given a lexicon is described, and a BI-RADS features extraction algorithm is presented that outperforms manual feature extraction at the 5% statistical significance level.

Knowledge Discovery from Structured Mammography Reports Using Inductive Logic Programming

Using a database from a breast imaging practice containing patient risk factors, imaging findings, and biopsy results, inductive logic programming (ILP) could discover interesting hypotheses that could be tested and validated by analysis of the data itself.

Big biomedical data as the key resource for discovery science

In support of this work, the authors developed new technological capabilities that make it easy for researchers to manage, aggregate, manipulate, integrate, and model large amounts of distributed data.

Lumping versus splitting: the need for biological data mining in precision medicine

Here it is asked why improved and appropriate data mining is not only positive but a vast improvement on most current analyses of genomic data.

Breast imaging reporting and data system (BI-RADS).

Text and Data Mining Techniques in Adverse Drug Reaction Detection

In order to highlight the importance of contributions made by computer scientists in this area so far, the existing approaches are categorized and review, and most importantly, areas where more research should be undertaken are identified.

A logistic regression model based on the national mammography database format to aid breast cancer diagnosis.

The authors' logistic regression model can effectively discriminate between benign and malignant breast disease and can identify the most important features associated with breast cancer.

Breast Imaging Reporting and Data System: inter- and intraobserver variability in feature analysis and final assessment.

Inter- and intraobserver variability in mammography interpretation is substantial for both feature analysis and management, and continued development of methods to improve standardization in mammographic interpretation is needed.

Creating value in health care through big data: opportunities and policy implications.

Big data's success in creating value in the health care sector may require changes in current polices to balance the potential societal benefits of big-data approaches and the protection of patients' confidentiality.
