Early detection of cancer is proven to increase a woman’s survival rate. In a recent US study presented at SBI 2021, 16,004 screening mammograms and their prior exams were analyzed by the MammoScreen. The results concluded that by thresholding at a MammoScreen Score™ of 6 (middle point of the MammoScreen Score, which is the best compromise in term of sensitivity and specificity), 27% of the cancer cases were found one year earlier by the AI system and 21% 2 years earlier, with a minimal increase in recall rate.
