Computer-Aided Detection Systems
Definition : Computerized systems that analyze digital information (typically images) to detect abnormalities; they may either digitize the original information or use information provided by digital systems. These systems typically consist of a digitizer or a means to import digital information, a computer capable of using appropriate algorithms, and a display and/or printer to show the detected abnormalities for further analysis. Some systems may include capabilities of archiving and/or communication of view and annotated digital images of pathology scanned slides. Dedicated systems for detection and analysis both of in-vivo images (e.g., breast, pulmonary) and from tissue (pathology) slides (e.g., Pap smear, prostatic) are available.
