The goal of the Digital Mammography (DM) DREAM Challenge was to apply an open science, crowd-sourced approach to develop and assess algorithms for risk stratification of screening mammograms that can be used to improve breast cancer detection. These algorithms could potentially benefit interpretation of other tumor imaging, impacting a wide set of cancer patients. The DM Challenge encouraged teams to apply deep learning methods to a large set of mammography images of over 640k images from 80k women. Dozens of teams participated in this Challenge, resulting in the development of many novel approaches to cancer detection and the establishment of public standards and benchmarks in this field.
