Abstract

Rationale and Objectives: The aim of this study was to examine radiologists' use and perceptions of computer-aided detection (CAD) and double reading for screening mammography interpretation. Materials and Methods: A mailed survey of 257 community radiologists participating in the national Breast Cancer Surveillance Consortium was used to assess perceptions and practices related to CAD and double reading. Latent class analysis was used to classify radiologists' overall perceptions of CAD and double reading on the basis of their agreement or disagreement with specific statements about CAD and double reading. Results: Most radiologists (64%) reported using CAD for more than half the screening mammograms they interpreted, but only
