digital mammography

a way of storing an x-ray picture of the breast (mammogram) as a computer image rather than on the usual x-ray film. Digital mammography can be combined with computer-assisted detection or diagnosis (CAD), a process in which the radiologist uses the computer to help interpret or read the mammogram. See also radiologist, mammogram.
