Abstract

Assessment of breast density at the point of mammographic examination could lead to optimized breast cancer screening pathways. The onsite breast density information may offer guidance when to recommend supplemental imaging for women in a screening program. In this work, performance evaluation of a new software (Insight BD, Siemens Healthcare GmbH) for fast onsite quantification of volumetric breast density is presented. Accuracy of volumetric measurement is evaluated using breast tissue equivalent phantom experiments. Reproducibility of measurement results is analyzed using 8150 4-view mammography exams. Furthermore, agreement between breast density categories computed by the software with those determined visually by radiologists is... (More)

Assessment of breast density at the point of mammographic examination could lead to optimized breast cancer screening pathways. The onsite breast density information may offer guidance when to recommend supplemental imaging for women in a screening program. In this work, performance evaluation of a new software (Insight BD, Siemens Healthcare GmbH) for fast onsite quantification of volumetric breast density is presented. Accuracy of volumetric measurement is evaluated using breast tissue equivalent phantom experiments. Reproducibility of measurement results is analyzed using 8150 4-view mammography exams. Furthermore, agreement between breast density categories computed by the software with those determined visually by radiologists is examined. The results of the performance evaluation demonstrate that the software delivers accurate and reproducible measurements that agree well with the visual assessment of breast density by radiologists.
