In breast cancer screening programs, such as the one running in the Netherlands, a high volume of mammography data is acquired. Radiologists have to evaluate hundreds of images every day with precision and often under time pressure. Artificial intelligence (AI) offers radiologists smart support: “It’s like having an additional colleague at the press of a button,” says radiologist Ritse Mann of Radboud University Medical Center, Nijmegen, the Netherlands.

When evaluation mammography images, radiologists at Radboud University Medical Center are supported by artificial intelligence.
