Abstract
Our research aims to assess the value of the single cranio-caudal view mammogram in the detection of breast cancer. 129 radiologists were asked to report 60 two-view mammograms of the left and right breasts and 55 radiologists assessed a set of 55 single cranio-caudal views. Participants were asked to search for the presence of any breast lesions and provide confidence scores for their decisions. Results showed that two-view mammograms were more effective in detecting malignant nodules than single cranio-caudal view in terms of sensitivity, localized-sensitivity, ROC and JAFROC. The single cranio-caudal view had a higher specificity as compared to two-view mammography.
