Abstract

In summary, the results reported by Gur et al. highlight the importance of continued investigation of new screening technologies after they have received FDA approval. The study also shows the challenge of moving from the retrospective, enriched test situations used for FDA approval to cancer screening in actual practice. As more studies on computer-aided detection in the community setting are published and as computer-aided detection systems improve, we hope that women's lives can ultimately be saved by this new technology.
