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. A requirement for effective CAD systems is a film digitizer capable of providing exceptional image quality and a high level of reliability.
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.

Computer Aided Diagnosis. A sophisticated program which can aid the diagnosis of images,. It usually has some artificial intelligence base.
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
Coronary artery disease. A condition in which a coronary artery is clogged by cholesterol and fatty deposits. Clogged arteries may potentially reduce the supply of oxygen-rich blood to the heart muscle and lead to a heart attack (myocardial infarction).
Coronary Artery Disease:. Conditions that cause narrowing of the coronary arteries so blood flow to the heart muscle is reduced.
Coronary Artery Disease. Disease affecting the coronary arteries that surround the heart and supply blood to the heart muscle. CAD occurs when the lumen of the coronary arteries becomes narrowed with plaque deposits (a buildup of cholesterol and other fats, calcium and elements carried in the blood).
