Breast cancer: importance of spiculation in computer-aided detection.

Abstract

PURPOSE To determine the prevalence of spiculation in a large series of screening-detected breast cancers appearing as masses on mammograms and to assess the sensitivity of a computer-aided detection (CAD) algorithm that uses spiculation measures in the detection of such lesions. MATERIALS AND METHODS Six hundred seventy-seven consecutive cases of breast… (More)
