Table 6 Diagnostic performance for discriminating breast diseases versus negative cases for mammography BI-RADS score, US BI-RADS score, mammography/US BI-RADS score, and DeHCA score

From: Optical imaging of the breast: evaluation of deoxyhemoglobin concentration alteration in 166 patients with suspicious breast lesions

Mammography/US BI-RADS 0.98 0.96 0.95 0.95 0.96 0.96
DeHCA score (optimal cutoff = 0.85) 0.55 0.62 0.47 0.54 0.56 0.55
DeHCA score (cutoff = 0.80) 0.55 0.81 0.28 0.59 0.60 0.54
