A system that incorporates advanced pattern recognition and image analysis capabilities to aid radiologists in the detection of abnormalities on digitized mammography images. CAD systems provide a targeted second review for busy radiologists in order to improve the early detection of breast cancer.

CAD is a computer system that assists 911 operators and dispatch personnel in handling and prioritizing calls. Enhanced 911 will send the location of the call to the CAD system that will automatically display the address of the 911 caller on a screen in front of the operator. Complaint information is then entered into the computer and is easily retrievable. The system may be linked to MDTs in patrol cars allowing dispatchers and officers to communicate without using voice. The system may also be interfaced with NCIC, AVL, or a number of other programs.

Coronary Artery Disease. Obstructive lesions in the native arteries feeding the heart muscle. CAD is due to progressive buildup of cholesterol, lipids (fat) and reactive inflammatory tissue in the middle layer of the coronary artery wall. As the plaque builds in size, the blood flow channel of that artery is progressively blocked. The disease is chronic and progressive. Sudden closure of an obstructed vessel can damage the heart supplied by the disease artery, causing an acute heart attack
