Clinical

How can MammoScreen® help radiologists in their daily practice? Therapixel conducted an in-depth study* to understand and quantify the clinical benefits for both the radiologist and the practice. This study was conducted using version 1.0 of the MammoScreen® software, which has since been upgraded to version 1.2. This new version includes improved algorithms which further increase MammoScreen®’s overall performance.


Increase reader confidence

Rendering a diagnosis on your own can be very stressful. The use of MammoScreen® as a concurrent reader during the clinical evaluation increases reader confidence by as much as 53% by categorizing the level of suspicion for both low and high suspicion cases. The study results confirmed that when radiologists evaluated cases that had a high level of suspicion, MammoScreen®’s assessments helped them increase their level of suspicion 41% of the time. Conversely, when evaluating cases with a low level of suspicion, the radiologists’ level of suspicion was lowered 53% of the time.

Improve detection

MammoScreen® helps radiologists in interpreting difficult cases and detect more cancers. The study concluded that the average false-negative rate was reduced by 3.5% without affecting the radiologists’ specificity.

Reduce inter-reader variability

In addition to improving the individual's performance, the use of MammoScreen® could also help decrease the inter-reader variability and thus improve consistency. The study revealed that the intraclass correlation coefficient, assessing the agreement between radiologists, was increased by 13.7%.

Improve efficiency

Radiologists spent less time reading cases categorized by MammoScreen® as low suspicion (scores from 1 to 4) which can represent up to 80% of your screening population. The study demonstrated a 7% reduction in reading time for this category of cases.
