Software, Computer-Aided Detection System
Definition : Software designed to operate computer-aided detection systems and control/monitor a limited number of their functions. This software is usually intended to work only with one or a few models of computer-aided systems, usually supplied by the same manufacturer. The software performs a variety of algorithms to facilitate the analysis of images and the sending/receiving of patient information from and to information systems. Computer-aided detection system software is usually not available separate from the computer-aided system but may be updated (i.e., through the release of modified versions) during the life of the system. Dedicated computer-aided system software is available for a variety of different applications, either using in-vivo images (e.g., breast, pulmonary) or from tissue (pathology) slides (e.g., Pap smear, prostatic).
