Abstract

Breast cancer screening has been proven effective in Western countries, and our National Health Bureau also started to offer free screening mammography for women aged between 50 and 69, since July 2004. This study aims to compare the efficacy between distinctive mammography screening modalities. Prompting the assessment of digital screening in the radiological sciences, we provide insight into the practical informatics application of such tools.
