RATIONALE: Studying a new computer program to find and diagnose cancer or other diseases by evaluating radiologic images may help in planning cancer treatment and may help the study of cancer in the future. PURPOSE: This study is evaluating a computer program to find and diagnose cancer or other diseases using radiologic images.

Study summary:

OBJECTIVES: - Determine whether techniques for computer-aided detection of cancer or other diseases using radiologic images can be developed with a sensitivity of > 90% and < 5 false-positive detections per study. OUTLINE: Existing radiographic data (e.g., MRI, CT scan, ultrasound, nuclear medicine, and/or mammography) are evaluated with the Computer-Aided Detection and Diagnosis (CAD) program. Results of other diagnostic tests, such as blood tests and other imaging, and demographic and clinical information from the patient's chart may also be used. PROJECTED ACCRUAL: A total of 1,000 patients will be accrued for this study.


DISEASE CHARACTERISTICS: - Radiologic examinations in the clinical picture archiving system (PACS) at the NIH Clinical Center are available - Patients with and without target lesion(s)* are eligible - Target lesion(s) include, but are not limited to, any of the following: - Subcutaneous lesions - Bone lesions - Pulmonary emboli NOTE: *Patients with other disorders depicted on radiologic studies may be eligible, when appropriate PATIENT CHARACTERISTICS: - Not specified PRIOR CONCURRENT THERAPY: - Not specified
