AI applications in the field of breast imaging have gained a great deal of interest. Despite the use of computer-aided detection in breast screening having been studied in the past, it was not until the last decade that developments in machine learning and processing power made it possible to apply AI to digital imaging and computer systems for breast screening.

Employing these new technologies opens the application of AI in breast screening as an image interpretation tool, where patient outcomes are divided between routine recall versus recall for assessment. This is underpinned by breast screening’s comprehensive quality assurance processes and the requirements to track all results and detected cancers.
