What is CADe?
CADe stands for computer-aided detection, a computerized system that identifies portions of an image that may correlate to abnormalities, utilized to decrease perception error and reduce false negative rates. The FDA has approved the use of CADe for mammography, chest radiography, chest CT, and CT colonography. This is not to be confused with CADx (or CAD), which is computer-aided diagnosis. CADe of a finding requires validation by a radiologist, whereas CADx presumes independent clinical diagnosis of a disease.
