A traditional radiological evaluation of five lung diseases and their computer-aided diagnosis with Bayes' approach, were based on the plain chest film. Parameters of diagnostic performance for 12 radiologists, who made 1224 diagnoses by each method, were compared. Under the conditions of this study the use of a computer-aided method did not improve radiologists' performances independently of their diagnostic ability and experience.
