This article summarizes the state of computer-aided technologies for breast ultrasound screening. Computer-aided detection and diagnosis (CAD) technology for breast ultrasound screening has the potential to improve performance amongst less experienced readers, decrease interobserver variability, generate concise and accurate reports, save transcription costs, and create an invaluable database for accreditation, continuous quality improvement, and research. To fulfill its promise, CAD will have to evolve to remain compliant with version 2 of the American College of Radiology Breast Imaging Reporting and Data System (BI-RADS) Ultrasound Lexicon, incorporate detection capabilities to aid in screening, include a database function with turnkey reports, and overcome American regulatory hurdles that now prevent American clinicians from having the full-featured CAD programs available to clinicians outside the United States.
