To our knowledge, this study represents the first time that machine learning algorithms in DP have been used to measure their impact in the classification accuracy of pathologists and pathology residents. We demonstrate that such CAD tools can increase the classification accuracy in the setting of breast lesions, providing the basis for its future clinical implementation with supervision.
