Abstract

We compared observer performance of digital mammography among hard-copy readings and soft-copy readings using 3-megapixel (3M) and 5-megapixel (5M) liquid crystal display (LCD) monitors. Five experienced radiologists assessed 80 mammograms of 40 cancers and 40 benign lesions. There were no significant differences among the average A z of three modalities and among the κ values for intra- and interobserver agreement. The soft-copy reading using the 3M LCD monitor took a slightly longer time, although there were no significant differences.
