Paper Abstract

We have conducted a systematic study of the effectiveness of stereo imaging in aiding the detection of abnormalities in soft tissue geometry and density. Experiments have been designed whereby subjects are shown computer generated stereo mammograms and are asked to determine if there is an abnormal object (brighter or regularly arranged) in the mammogram. The experimental data have been analyzed using ROC approaches to determine which types of soft tissue abnormalities may be easier to detect using stereo viewing. Preliminary results suggest that stereo imaging may be more effective than current single view or biplane mammography for detecting abnormal densities and arrangements in soft tissue elements.
