Abstract

T his report describes a series of studies carried out as part of the investigation on behalf of the NHS HTA board to assess the potential role of computer aids in the UK NHS Breast Screening Programme (NHSBSP). This chapter describes the context. It starts by giving a brief overview of the role of mammography in the breast cancer screening programme and outlines some of the challenges facing the programme. The potential role of computer aids is then introduced, with a brief survey of the state of the art in computer-aided detection and diagnosis in mammography.
