Abstract
A recently completed ROC study of digital mammography using a 100 micron pixel storage phosphor receptor showed that digital mammography and conventional screen film mammography were essentially equivalent in areas under the ROC curve. In this study, there were 24 biopsy proven breast cancer cases, 25 benign biopsy cases and 48 clinically normal breast images each with matched screen film and storage phosphor images. Fifteen of the 24 cancer cases were 10 mm or less in size. Of these 10 presented with microcalcifications as the sign of disease. Six radiologists not involved with the research program and without prior experience with digital mammography and who met qualification criteria under the Mammography Quality Standards Act of 1992 served as readers. This poster looks at the cases in which there was variance between the radiologists ROC classification system for the digital and screen film system in order to analyze case specific discrepancies that may indicate benefits or deficits of the digital system. Aspects of the ROC ratings are also analyzed including an evaluation of the different thresholds used by radiologists on the digital and screen film systems, the distribution of ROC ratings in normal and abnormal cases, the effect of using different gold standards of proof on the results and the effect of substituting an ACR BIRADS category agreement study as proposed by the FDA compared to the ROC study outcome.
