Lucier's Work Increases Accuracy of Mammograms


Computer Science Professor Brad Lucier developed a file-compression system for digitized mammograms that will increase accuracy of mammogram readings.

"Any technique that improves the performance of radiologists is helpful, but this also means that mammograms can be taken in remote places that are underserved by the medical community," said Lucier. "The mammograms can then be sent electronically to radiologists, who can read the digitized versions knowing they will do at least as well as the original mammograms."
