Worldwide Computer Aided Detection Market (Breast, Lung, Colorectal, Prostate, Liver, Bone Cancer) Analysis by 2020

Computer assistance has always been valued and refined in all fields of human work. Medical sciences have never shied away from implementing computational technology especially in increasing efficiency of a diagnosis.


Albany, NY -- (SBWIRE) -- 12/30/2015 -- Computer Aided Detection (CAD) software constitutes a set of algorithms, which uses pattern recognition method predominantly to aid radiologists in detecting potentially diseased lesions or regions. This is achieved by using the clinical images generated through various imaging modalities such as X-Ray imaging, MRI, ultrasound imaging and computed tomography. Radiology involves analysis of a wide range of diagnostic images to detect possible abnormalities. However, as the number of patients opting for diagnostic imaging techniques is increasing, the volume of image data to be analyzed is also growing. As a result, the risk of failure in detecting abnormalities is very high. To rectify this situation, CAD as a diagnostic technology was introduced to assist radiologists in reducing detection errors. This technology not only helps in reducing detection errors, but also in precise interpretation of clinical images. The CAD market has gained momentum since 1998, when R2 Technology received the first CAD license from the U.S. FDA for industrial application named ImageChecker.
