Paper Abstract

One hundred and fifty conventional craniocaudad mammographic images representing various benign and malignant breast conditions were obtained and four separate copies of the original images were made, each having a specific and different change in resolution. Three experienced mammographers evaluated the randomly arranged original images and copies and recorded their analysis. The analysis included visibility of various anatomical breast structures and pathological lesions (-masses and calcifications), subjective image quality, and mammographic interpretation. The resulting 2,250 evaluations were analyzed by Receiver Operating Characteristics Analysis. No statistically significant difference in performance was demonstrated by the radiologists in the range of the resolution changes evaluated.
