Paper Abstract

False positive detections of microcalcifications by computer aided diagnosis (CADx) systems are a distraction to the radiologist and raise questions as to the eventual clinical utility of computer aided diagnosis systems. We have carefully analyzed the mammographic findings that appear in the locations of CADx detections and have counted and classified them.
